Lexington Discovery Day By CAAL Youth Reporter Christina Xiao & Emily Wu Saturday, October 8th. Donned with folding tables and posters, Lexington businesses and programs set up their booths for the annual Lexington Discovery Day. Hundreds of Lexington citizens roamed the streets of Mass Ave, checking out the miscellaneous assortment of booths.
Participation increased immensely, with nearly 70 volunteers for the CAAL program alone. The CAAL program (Chinese American Association of Lexington) showed their patriotic spirit by parading the “CAAL Dragon” across Massachusetts Avenue, blowing whistles and interacting with the excited viewers. In addition to the dragon marching, they hosted several other events, such as traditional Chinese games like kicking shuttlecocks, jumping rubber band etc., open to the people of Lexington and opportunities for photos.
Town departments, local business and community organizations have various interesting booths that enticed the residents. This year’s Discovery Day was a huge success for the Town of Lexington, and we hope it will be just as successful in the coming years.
