Washington Square wishes you and your family good fortune and happiness during the Year of the Rabbit.
In celebration of the Lunar New Year, shoppers are invited to visit the Summit Court to snap a selfie, make a wish on a red ribbon, and honor the Wishing Tree tradition. Enjoy traditional crafts, stories, dances, and more for the whole family, and celebrate the Lunar New Year.
Traditionally, New Year’s eve and New Year’s day are reserved for family celebrations, including religious ceremonies to honor ancestors. Communities celebrate with cultural dances, fireworks, and plenty of traditional foods, such as niang gao (sticky rice cake) and fish, to symbolize a surplus in luck and wealth. Celebrating the new year together.
