Year of the Dragon: Lunar new year celebration
Saturday, January 21, 2012
The IU Asian Culture Center in cooperation with the Monroe County Public Library will host a celebration involving cultural performances and entertainment, dragon-themed crafts, and traditional food. The center invites everyone to participate and join in the celebration to ring in the new year. Stories and performances start at 2pm in the library auditorium. Crafts begin at 2:30pm in the Children's Program Room.
The dragon is the fifth sign of the Chinese zodiac, which consists of 12 animal signs. In ancient China, the celestial dragon represented an emperor and power. Today it is the ultimate auspicious symbol signifying success and happiness. May the celestial dragon bring good luck to all!
