Celebrate Chinese New Year at NewPark Mall
Submitted By Sheryl Craig
The Chinese Lunar New Year, the Year of the Dragon, will be celebrated with traditional cultural activities, dances and arts and crafts at NewPark Mall on January 22, 2012.
The shopping center invites the community to gather in Center Court for beautiful dance performances and free classes by Lorraine Yee with Jing Mo Athletic Association. The day will also feature a craft activity for families, who will be making red lanterns and dragons.
The Jing Mo Athletic Association is a San Francisco-based martial arts group that has performed in the Bay Area for more than 30 years. The group began in the early 1900's with the unique teaching of all Chinese kung fu styles, all under one roof, and their story has been featured in movies including Bruce Lee's "Chinese Connection."
