The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Every year, Portland’s Lan Su Chinese Garden offers two weeks of traditional Chinese New Year events. The family-friendly celebration includes lion dances, family crafts, Chinese folk art, calligraphy, martial arts performances and a Chinese wishing tree. On the first day of the festival, every visitor receives a lucky hong bao (red envelope) as part of this traditional event. The celebration ends with several nights of Lantern Viewing Evenings, when the garden is illuminated by colorful lanterns and a lively dragon procession. (A separate admission ticket is required for this event. Learn more at lansugarden.org/lanternviewing.)
