CHI­NESE NEWYEAR

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

The an­nual Chi­nese New Year Fes­ti­val and Mar­ket Day re­turns on Satur­day at Green­lane’s ASB Show­grounds. With a his­tory of more than 30 years, the cel­e­bra­tion, or­gan­ised by the Auck­land Chi­nese Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, fea­tures the tra­di­tions, music, dance, art and food of China. Con­sul-Gen­eral of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China in Auck­land Er­wen Xu is ex­pected to open the event with an 11-per­son dragon dance at 10am. In­door shows in­clude dance and ac­ro­bat­ics groups from the Liaon­ing prov­ince, who are trav­el­ling spe­cially from the north of the Asian coun­try to de­liver their pro­fes­sional per­for­mances. As well as show­cas­ing Chi­nese cul­ture, the fes­ti­val is also a chance to re­mind new im­mi­grants of the hard work done by se­nior migrants.
