Mongolian Tsagaan Sar | Lunar New Year 2020 along the Pike

Mongolian Tsagaan Sar, the Lunar New Year Festival for the Year of the Rat, was recently celebrated at the Montessori Public School of Arlington, just off Columbia Pike.

The occasion featured Mongolian foods, dance, traditional wrestling and costumes, artwork, singing, and stories from Mongolian lore. Great respect is paid to the elders.

The community estimates its numbers in the area to be between six and eight thousand people.

Lovely folks.

You can keep updated on the community through the Friends of Mongolia.
