Chinese New Year on Bainbridge Island 2007

February 14th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Our family spent Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon enjoying the Chinese New Year celebrations organized by Bainbridge Island Chinese Connection. Demonstrations of traditional dances (mostly minority cultures) by The Melody Institute and Peking opera singers entertained us on Saturday evening. On Sunday the lion dancers amazed us and we came home carrying the girls’ names written in calligraphy on red banners. Free food such as dumplings and ginger chicken noodles, face painting and a parade were all part of the afternoon festivities. Ted’s photos are here. Learn how to say Chinese New Year greetings (and see the mayor), watch the lion dance (and eat lettuce), and get a glimpse of other pieces of our island celebration in this video I compiled.
Gung hei fat choi!

    How fun! When I last saw Maryam in San Jose she was telling me that because of when I was born (1971)this is my golden year, and it will bring me lots of luck. Ted took beautiful pictures, by the way!
