Sat, 12pm - 3pm
A rippling 60-foot dragon will parade through Hillsboro Village and lion dancers will cavort as part of the entertainment in a Chinese New Year Celebration.
Both the lion and dragon are symbols of good luck, fortune, strength and power in the Chinese culture. “We bring joy and blessings to our community in the tradition of the Chinese New Year, and we invite everyone to join us!” said Jen-Jen Lin, director of the Chinese Arts Alliance of Nashville.
The nonprofit arts organization is the driving force behind the event in which schools, neighborhoods and others are partnering. A choir of students and the public will open the program at Corner Park with a popular Chinese New Year Song called 恭喜Gong Xi (pronounced “gong-see”). Gong Xi means congratulations and it’s said to congratulate one another for making it to another year and to wish each other good luck for the coming one. It’s a sing-along with the music available!
