Chinese New Year is always an enjoyable festival for those not familiar with the Chinese culture. You learn new things and have fun all while enjoying a new experience. Most importantly, if you were one of the few people working on New Year’s Eve, you get a chance to celebrate another New Year.
If you follow our calendar, this Saturday, January 28th, the World Financial Center will be hosting a FREE celebration for the Chinese Lunar New Year for all ages. Beginning at 1pm, you’ll be able to participate in some arts & crafts such as traditional techniques of paper cutting, dough figurines, face painting, and calligraphy.
Performances brought to you by the New York Chinese Cultural Center will begin at 2:30pm. The audience will be serenaded by gravity-defying acrobatics, festive musical ensembles and costumed folk dancers. Fear not, folks because the lion-dance will make its presence felt.The festivities end at 4pm, freeing you up for the rest of the evening.
