SCHOFIELD (WAOW) -- Halloween isn't the only reason to celebrate. The Hmong New Year kicked off today at the Greenheck Fieldhouse in Schofield. Hundreds gathered, many in traditional Hmong outfits, to enjoy food, entertainment and good company.

The Hmong New year celebration is usually a week-long. It begins with "Pe Tsiab" or paying respect to your elders for a blessing of good health and fortune. The festivities continue with ball tossing, a traditional Hmong game. The festivities continue on Saturday night until 11:30pm.
