Chinese New Year Celebration

Chinese New Year Celebration @ Hillsboro Village is happening again!

A rippling 60-foot dragon will parade through Hillsboro Village and lion dancers will cavort as part of the entertainment in a Chinese New Year Celebration.

Both the lion and dragon are symbols of good luck, fortune, strength and power in the Chinese culture.  “We bring joy and blessings to our community in the tradition of the Chinese New Year, and we invite everyone to join us!” said Jen-Jen Lin, director of the Chinese Arts Alliance of Nashville.

The nonprofit arts organization is the driving force behind the event in which schools, neighborhoods and others are partnering.  A choir of students and the public will open the program at Corner Park with a popular Chinese New Year Song called 恭喜Gong Xi (pronounced  “gong-see”).  Gong Xi means congratulations and it’s said to congratulate one another for making it to another year and to wish each other good luck for the coming one. It’s a sing-along with the music available!

In addition to the lion dance and dragon dance, Playing by Air, a professional juggling performing group, Nashville Chinese School’s Chinese yo you club, MLK High School Chinese Language Class Students, Vanderbilt Kungfu Club and more will join us for the celebration. There will be Chinese food from Lucky Bamboo, the Best Chinese restaurant voted by Nashville Scene as well as other food trucks will join the food corner of the event.

Come in Chinese costumes or outfits.  Red is the lucky color especially for the Chinese New Year!

Cold weather will not deter the effort, but icy roads will. In case of rain and light snow, they will move the event to the Vanderbilt Recreation Center (2700 Children’s Way, Nashville)

If you have program and would like to present, please contact them no later than Jan 15, 2018.
