It was also a chance for people to learn about the Korean community in Albuquerque. “We are far away from our homeland so we are isolated from our culture and all kinds of language, so this event gives our children, the younger generations, more chance to understand our culture,” said Sooshin Lee, Principal at the Korean Languages School.
Organizers say about 700 people came to attend the event.
