This year is a special year of the Mouse. Dress as your favorite mouse characters like Ratatouille, Stuart Little and Three-Blind-Mice. Register at the CAAN’s info booth to compete for prizes!
The Chinese Arts Alliance is presenting “MOUSE BRIDE” storytelling with puppets and dance.
This is a free event, open to the public of all ages. Dragon Parade around the village will conclude the celebration starting at 2:50 PM. We will use the mouse masks that we made at the Arts/Crafts workshop and percussive instruments to accompany our 60-foot long dragon making cheerful noise and bring blessings to everyone. Asian food vendors will be there too.
We encouraged you to wear red or dress up in Chinese costumes to celebrate the very cheerful New Year.
Please let us know that you are coming so as to plan. In case of rain or heavy snow, we will move to an indoor facility.
Happy New Year to everyone!
