The Bates College student organization Sangai Asia ends another academic year with a bang as it offers fireworks, food and music on Sunday, May 6, at the Florence Keigwin Amphitheater, adjacent to the Olin Arts Center, 75 Russell St.

The event is open to the public at no cost. The rain date is Friday, May 18, at 7:30 p.m. For more information, please contact jrice2@bates.edu.

The fun begins at 7:30 p.m. with music and food. Sounds will be provided by the Flu Fighters, a Bates student band that plays ” ’90s mischief mixed with some classic rock flair,” according to band member Erik Barth.

Wei-Li, a Chinese restaurant in Auburn, will supply appetizers on a first-come, first-served basis.

Around 9 p.m., the fireworks display over Lake Andrews begins.

Sangai Asia promotes Asian and Asian-American awareness, identity and fellowship at Bates.
