Special to The Advocate
Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the City of Everett will host a Lunar New Year celebration on Friday, Feb. 16, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Connolly Center (90 Chelsea St.). The City of Everett will be joining in celebrations across the world with a Lunar New Year celebration for all to partake in with food and entertainment to ring in 2024. This year marks the beginning of the Year of the Dragon, which is one of 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac. All are welcome to celebrate the Lunar New Year as a community.
Celebrated on the second new moon after the winter solstice, Lunar New Year marks the beginning of the new year in the traditional Chinese lunar solar calendar. Although Lunar New Year is observed worldwide, it is commonly celebrated in China – along with many other countries in East Asia – with performances, dances, festivals, parades, music and acrobatics.
