A number of countries celebrate the Lunar New Year and we want to celebrate the rich traditions of Asia with everyone, Angela Colton, the museums executive director, said. We have a magical day planned, sure to enchant children with the beautiful costumes, music and theatrics of our performers. Plus, we know how much our little guests enjoy meeting high school students from the community.
The event is recommended for ages 7 years and under. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
