The 24th Annual Asian Festival in Dallas is the longest running Asian festival in North Texas. It is also the largest Asian Pacific American Heritage Month celebration in Texas.

This year the festival is kick off with some obvious changes. On Good Morning Texas, the audience was treated with the moves of breakdancer Pablo Barragan. Organizers say they are gearing some of the entertainment towards a younger audience and some different cultures will also be displayed at the event.

Festival goers will also have the opportunity to experience some of the traditional dances and foods still performed in several Asian cultures.

More than 20 countries will be represented at the event to include Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese and Cambodian, Indian, Pakistani, Indonesia and more.

The festival takes place Saturday, May 17 at Main Street Garden.
