Sunday 29th January
Location: Throughout Chinatown
Time: 11.00am to 6.00pm
The streets are awash with a cacophony of rhythmic drumming as Chinese Lions bring in the New Year by blessing the businesses of Chinatown. Evil spirits are scared away with fire crackers and prosperity is bestowed on each shop front in the coming year.
Performed by the Chinese Masonic Society and the Chinese Youth Society of Melbourne.
