The Lion Dance performance is by the Quang Minh Buddhist Temple Youth Group of Albuquerque, a non-profit lion dance troupe. "All funds raised by the youth group are used to further the teachings of Buddhism and Vietnamese language and culture to the community. Quang Minh Buddhist Youth Group was founded in 1996, and is still going 15 years strong. Our lion dance troupe has been the finest and oldest team around for over a decade. Join us for one of our energy filled performances, and experience the history and tradition! We perform year around, bringing good luck and fortune to any event.
