Photos: D.C.’s Chinese community celebrates culture on the National Mall

Over 200 entertainers, artists and martial arts masters performed Saturday on the National Mall as a part of the 14th annual Chinese Culture Festival, hosted by the Greater Washington Chinese American Community. This year, GWCAC collaborated with Guizhou, a province in southwest China, to host “Guizhou Cultural Week,” a series of performances and discussions highlighting the customs and culture of Guizhou.
