It's time to immerse yourself into a beautiful cultural event that's full of color, music, and dancing. It's yet another chance this April for you to participate in the 8th Annual Marathon County Hmong Heritage Month festivities.

So far, the local Hmong community has hosted a kickoff celebration, a health forum with Hmong doctors, and healthy cooking demonstration.

This weekend, some area students are going to step into the spotlight at a concert benefit held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 23 at Wausau East High School. Proceeds go to the Chad Kue Foundation.

Performances include a variety of musicians, dancers and speakers. The dance group "Nkauj Hmoob Huam Pham" performed live on Sunrise 7. Click on the link in this web story to view the performance.
