The Year of the Pig is here - come celebrate
The Chung Wah Association always put on a festival for Chinese New Year and this year will be no exception. It's the Year of the Pig and celebrations will be huge for this event.
The 2019 Perth Chinese New Year Fair comes to Northbridge on Sunday 10 February, noon to 9.00 pm. This multicultural extravaganza includes a parade, stalls, cultural activities, lion and dragon dancing, multicultural concert, games and rides. Cultural performances will dazzle throughout the day on James and Lake Streets and in Chinatown on Roe Street.
This will be one of the biggest celebrations for the Chinese Community and indeed for the Chinese New Year, so make sure you come down and be part of the festivities. You will be able to watch the great dragon dance and other performances!
