– Storytelling: Listen to the legend of Nien, hear about the Chinese zodiac, learn the many ways we celebrate the 15 days of the Lunar New Year, and discover the traits of 2020’s Rat.
– Crafts: Kids can make a lion’s head to ward off evil spirits, create a hong bao envelope to give and receive special treats, and practice writing chun lian and fu dao with Chinese characters.
– Parade: Families can join the parade to the NY Chinese Scholar’s Garden (weather permitting) and hear cymbals, drums, and pop-it firecrackers scare off evil spirits.
– Food: Enjoy a tasting of traditional foods like dumplings, spring rolls, and chrysanthemum tea.
Adults without kids can also participate in this immersive cultural celebration. With our educator in Chinese calligraphy, you’ll enjoy more grown-up artistic activities like ink wash painting, chun lian writing, plus entry to the NY Chinese Scholar’s Garden and warm refreshments.
