This is a free event, open to the public of all ages. Dragon Parade around the village will conclude the celebration starting at 2:50 PM. We will use the mouse masks that we made at the Arts/Crafts workshop, and percussive instruments accompany our 60-foot long dragon making cheerful noise and bring blessings to everyone! Asian food vendors will be there too!
We encouraged you wear red or dress up in Chinese costumes to celebrate the very cheerful New Year! Please let us know that you are coming so as to plan. In case of rains or heavy snow, we will move to indoor facility.
