On Saturday, February 18th, we had a wonderfully sunny California day which was perfect for the Chinese Historical and Cultural Project (CHCP) to hold its annual Lunar New Year Celebration at History Park San Jose where its Chinese American Historical Museum proudly stands. Besides being able to visit our museum and see new exhibit features, we had Lion Dancing, Hoong our dragon and a Year of the Rabbit in person leading the parade of children at the end of the event.
In addition, we had remarkable groups performing martial arts, Chinese cultural dances and Chinese yo-yo demonstrations.
There was also Chinese calligraphy demonstrations, K-pop dancing, the Firebird Chinese Youth Orchestra playing
traditional Chinese musical instruments, Chinese New Year games and craft activities for the kids, the "Rolling Duck" food truck serving delicious Asian dishes, plus our educational "Pioneering the Valley" Traveling Exhibit was also out on display.
So be sure to come out and not miss the fun and festivities next time CHCP holds its events – lots of excitement and fun cultural experiences.
