This exciting annual event - which has served more than 350 community members in years past - celebrates Lowell's Cambodian community with Khmer food, live entertainment, and beautiful traditional outfits. Cambodian royal ballet dancers will give live performances of dances usually performed only for the royal families. A colorful and lively parade follows at noon, which will wind through downtown Lowell and end in Clemente Park.
Event collaborators include many residents and volunteers, as well as the Cambodian Mutual Assistance Association of Greater Lowell, City of Lowell Police Department, the City of Lowell Senior Center, Coalition for Better Acre, Fallon Health-Summit ElderCare/NaviCare, Lowell Alliance, Lowell Community Health Center, Lowell High School, and Lowell Police Department and Metta Health Center.
