New year fun

DRAGON kites, Chinese Zodiac face painting and Taekwondo exhibitions were some of the activities enjoyed by those at the Chinese New Year family fun day held on Saturday in Atherton.

The festivities at Chinatown Atherton were aimed at celebrating the Year of the Dragon and to create awareness of the role the Chinese played in the history of the town and region.

Unlike the Western or Gregorian New Year, which always falls on January 1, the date of the Lunar New Year changes each year to correspond with the first new moon of the lunar calendar. In 2024, that fell on Saturday.

Attending the Chinese New Year event were (LEFT) Sylvia and Amy Jia, and (RIGHT) Kayla Devery.
