Su San, 13, performs one of 10 traditional Burmese dances Saturday at the sixth annual Burmese Water Festival in Salt Lake City. The Burmese community in Utah celebrated its new year a couple of months late with a traditional water festival. The Working Committees for the Burmese Community gathered money from the community to provide free food, dance performances and playtime in the water. "New Year was in April, but it was a cold year here," said Zaw Than Htike of the late celebration.
