Celebrate the Year of the Pig with free, family-friendly activities. At 1:30 pm, see the wild Lion Dance performed by members of Kwan’s Kung Fu to clear the air for a fantastic new year. After an educational and historical introduction, the giant lion, led by drum rhythms, makes its way around the room being fed red envelopes filled with written wishes for good luck in the New Year. Around 2:30 pm, two hands-on art-making workshop highlight New Year’s crafts that bring good luck and prosperity: Year of the Pig Crafts and Traditional Decorative Knots.
