Thrill to the Dancing Lions and Thumping Drums of the Shaolin Lohan Pai Lion Dance Troupe. Enjoy egg rolls from our new sponsor, Yen Ching Restaurant. Indulge in traditional CNY treats – moon cakes, oranges, unusual candies. Festivities will start with a pre-school story time. We hosted 200 attendees last year, and we are expecting another big, happy crowd.
For the full experience, wear red clothing to scare away bad fortune, bring red packets full of chocolate coins as gifts for your children, and display lanterns, fish, and flowers.
