Families with children can participate in:
Storytelling: Listen to the legend of Nien, hear about the Chinese zodiac, learn the many ways we celebrate the 15 days of the Chinese New Year, and discover the traits of 2021’s Ox.
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 from their own home with homemade percussion to scare off evil spirits.
Adults without kids can also participate in this immersive cultural celebration. With Ben Ng, our educator in Chinese calligraphy, you’ll enjoy more grown-up artistic activities like ink wash painting and chun lian writing.
