HONG KONG MARKET PLACE FLOWER FESTIVAL

Featuring traditional games for all ages, Vietnamese Lotto is a fun way to ring in the Year of the Pig at Asia Times Square. All cultural games and activities are designed to help the community in “Preserving Traditions, Promoting Cultures,” the motto of the square. Winners will get prizes, so get ready to participate!
At the sweet treats booths, you can take home some of the most delicious Southeast Asian delicacies! Satisfy your sweet tooth and try a variety of jams and preserved fruits that can be purchased by the pound such as mứt chùm ruột or xí muội. You’ll also find a mix of other foods at the festival, from classic dishes to Laos, American and Vietnamese favorites.
One of the event sponsors, the LOH Foundation has provided carnival game booths throughout the festival, so our little ones can play all day for free. If you’ve been to a carnival lately, this is a definite deal!
HONG KONG MARKET PLACE
Featuring over 80 vendors, Hong Kong Market Place in Asia Times Square offers a unique shopping experience you can’t find anywhere else. And if you can’t make it out to the festivities, Asia Times Square in Grand Prairie is a haven for exploring the culture, flavors and services of the East year round. It’s also home to one of the largest Asian grocery stores in North Texas—a purveyor of fresh produce, meat, live seafood and more from Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Japan, Thailand and other far East countries. My family and I love dining at the Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot, where we get to “make” our own soup at the table—using a variety of different broths, vegetables, condiments and proteins. For dessert, Bambu is our favorite! Their Vietnamese sweet drinks are delicious, refreshing and filling—with ingredients like Mung beans, Pandan jellies, jackfruit and palm seeds. They do serve iced coffee and iced tea, but why not get a little adventurous and try their more exotic menu items?
