Hmong International New Year started its weeklong run at the Fresno Fairgrounds on Monday celebrating tradition and something new.
Tradition included games like pov pob, a ball toss, and handing out good luck hard-boiled eggs.
New was Elk Grove Mayor Steve Ly, who grew up in Clovis and is the first Hmong elected mayor of a U.S. city.
