Downtown Tallahassee turned into a literal buffet of Asian cultures and especially Asian food on Saturday, Oct. 6.  The Fourteenth Annual Experience Asia Festival brought tens-of-thousands to the Bloxham and Lewis parks.

Among the many cultural festivals in and around Tallahassee over the weekend, there was the Eleventh Annual Experience Asia Festival in the downtown Chain of Parks.

There was non-stop entertainment on two separate stages.

There were also delicious foods from many culinary cultures, including Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Korean and the Philippines.  Despite threatening skies and many other ethnic festivals going on in the area at the same time, Thayumanasamy "Soma" Somasumdarum with the Asian Coalition of Tallahassee was thrilled with the turnout.
