Korean cultural heritage celebrated in Annandale

Hundreds of people converged on Ossian Hall Park in Annandale Aug. 9 for Korean Cultural Heritage Night, featuring music, dance, drumming, a martial arts demonstration, and food. It was also an early celebration of Korean Independence Day on Aug. 15, which commemorates Korea’s liberation from Japanese rule.
