Celebrations on the rise
RING in the Lunar New Year with a month of celebrations at Southlands Willetton.
To mark the beginning of the Year of the Rat on January 25, the centre has been decorated in red Chinese lanterns, festoon lighting and good luck trees.
For many Australians with Asian backgrounds, the Lunar New Year is an important occasion often celebrated with family reunions, feasts and blessings to family and friends.
Centre manager Quentin Dennis said Lunar New Year celebrations reflected the centre’s pride in being part of this culturally rich community.
Chung Wah will hold a traditional lion dance performance on February 5, from 12-1pm, with celebrations continuing until February 9. Visit www.southlands.com.au.
