Amarillo Zoo celebrates Asian Pacific Month

It's Asian Pacific Month and the year of the snake, because the panhandle has such a large Asian population, the Amarillo zoo is joining the celebration.

Saturday the zoo was filled with various sights and sounds of the Asian people and culture. Various stations were set up to embrace the heritage.

"This is the second year to do this, we really like this one. We've got a large Asian community, so we like to have those individuals come out and help educate the public about what goes on in that part of the world," said Zoo Educator Haley Wilde. "And some different cultural things that other people don't know about."

Eastridge elementary students danced at the event, demonstrating five different dances.
