Chinese New Year Celebrations

Chinese New Year is coming soon. I thought I would share a couple of local events in case you were interested in taking your children to them. Chinese New Year's Day is January 28th with two weeks of festivities following that. This two week period might also be a great time to visit a Chinese restaurant because many of them will have smaller celebrations then, too.

The first event is the 2017 Chinese New Year Celebration at the Southridge Recreation Center in Highlands Ranch. Below are photos of the flyer with more information and details. Click here to purchase tickets for the on-stage portion of the celebration.

The second event that I want to share with you is Beautiful China hosted by the Chinese American Association including Joyous Chinese Cultural Center (where we visited for our fieldwork) at Buell Theatre. Click here to order tickets.

The performing arts troupe from Jiangxi province, China will present traditional Chinese dance and acrobatics to celebrate 2017 Chinese New Year.
