Celebrate Chinese New Year in Preston Market

chinese-red-lanternsThis year, Chinese New Year—the Year of the Monkey—begins on Monday the 8 February and lasts until 27 January 2017. The New Year is also known as the Spring Festival and it is marked by the lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes each year.

It’s party time with the celebrations kicking off in Preston Market on Saturday 13 February from 10am until 2pm. Festivities include mask painting, calligraphy, high stilts, Lion Blessing, Chinese bands and music, craft activities, Kung Fu performances, and much more!

So come join us, the Confucius Institute at La Trobe University, Preston Market, and Preston Central and have some fun! Register now for free from here.
