Behind The Media, The Real Oakland Chinatown

Introduce people to the real Oakland Chinatown, other than what is depicted in the media. OMG is organizing the Summer Festival (Qixi Festival) at 9th street Oakland along with the Oakland Chinatown Improvement Council.

The Qixi Festival, also known as Chinese valentine day, is the most romantic of all traditional Chinese holidays. During the day, people write their wishes on a paperboard and hang them on the tree to pray for love.
