Looking for plans this weekend that don’t include Valentine’s Day celebrations? We’ve got some less amorous options for you. Celebrate kids, Horror movies, Professional Wrestlers and Chinese New Year…oh my! A little something for everyone…..
Chinese New Year – Friday 2/16 through 2/4
2018 is the Year of the Dog – Celebrate the Chinese New Year at Lan Su Chinese Garden‘s two-week celebration. This is the most colorful and joyous of all Chinese festivals featuring lion dances, cultural performances, and more! The celebration kicks off Friday, February 16 with “Rolling in the Wealth,” a traditional good fortune activity of rolling oranges and gold coins symbolizing prosperity in the new year.
The evenings end with Lantern Viewing Evenings when the garden is illuminated with colorful lanterns and a lively dragon procession. Chinese New Year is the most popular time to visit the garden. Plan for the best visit by purchasing your tickets ahead of time and arriving early for your favorite activities.
