Terrific weather, exotic food, intriguing craftmaking and outstanding entertainment combined to make this year's 2-day Asian festival a rousing — and crowded — success.

Ever a popular feature during the annual observance, the outdoor luncheon allowed attendees to sample cuisines from several Asian and Pacific Island countries, including the Philippines, China, Japan, Korea, India and Thailand.

Event coordinators include (from l) Shuko Yoshikami, Victor Fung and Ed Sunderland.
