Join us as we celebrate the Year of the Horse! Explore Chinatown on the busiest, noisiest and most delicious day of the year. We'll start the morning with Dim Sum, then take to the streets to watch the Lion Dances as they work their way from shop to shop. We'll visit a bakery, an herbal shop and a grocery, and learn about what brings good luck for the year ahead and what actions are taboo. When the crowds and the pop, pop, popping of the firecrackers become too much to bear, we'll slip into a restaurant to enjoy a traditional "Huo Guo" or Chinese Fondue. This communal style of eating, with roots in ancient Mongolia, is now a traditional way of ringing in the Lunar New Year all over Asia and is an experience not to be missed!
