Lunar New Year


Join us for a community celebration to welcome 2020, the year of the Metal Rat. We’ll have Lion Dances, Kung-Fu demonstrations and more!

The Lion Dance is performed during Lunar New Year to drive away evil spirits and bring in good luck for the upcoming year. “Plucking the greens” is a traditional custom performed where the lion approaches, plucks and eats the lucky green lettuce hung at an entry. After eating, the lion will spit out the green lettuce which represents the lion spreading wealth, prosperity and good luck!
Time: 12:00pm

After that, enjoy Kung Fu and Tai Chi demonstrations. Kung Fu involves complex sequences of physical movements, which take a great deal of focus and attention to master. It’s even been used to help kids develop their concentration skills! The display will end with an example of Tai Chi Ball, which is a traditional training tool used to strengthen muscles, joints, and bones.
Time: 12:30pm
