Recap: Chinese Lantern Festival

14 Feb 2017

On Saturday the Chinese Lantern Festival marked the final day of traditional New Year Celebrations for the Year of the Rooster which celebrated the first full moon for the Lunar Year.

From 10am, everyone enjoyed over 100 Asian inspired market stalls with Chinese New year souvenirs, unique & authentic cuisines that tantalised your tastebuds.

There was no shortage of cultural activities and performances at the Main stage that delighted the audience.

Did your little one enjoy their time in the Lantern & Junior Lion Dancing workshops? Hopefully they were able to take home their very own Chinese Mask painting!

It would not be Chinese New Year without finishing the festival off with a bang! To close out the celebrations the Chinese Dragon Dancers returned alongside the exhilarating Fire Cracker Show.

Box Hill Central would like to say thank you to everyone who visited the centre over the last three weekends to celebrate the Lunar Year of the Fire Rooster.

Gong Xi Fa Cai! We hope this year brings you prosperity and happiness.
