Members of the media are invited to gather images and b-roll of the lively lion dance from 12:00PM to 12:30PM. The lion dance will be performed by Wah Lum Kung Fu & Tai Chi Academy. It has been part of Chinese culture for thousands of years and is performed on auspicious occasions such as Chinese New Year to chase away evil spirits and bring happiness, longevity, and good luck. The lion dancers will be accompanied by drum and cymbal musicians to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit.
The Year of the Rabbit runs from January 22, 2023 to February 9, 2024, and is predicted to be a year of hope.

People born in the Year of the Rabbit are said to be gentle, kind, social, witty, quick-minded, ingenious, and very responsible. They are most compatible with Goats, Dogs and Pigs. The element attached to this year’s Rabbit is water, which provides fluidity, calmness, and nourishment.
