The Lion starts dancing, courtesy of two guys inside a costume, at 11 AM on Saturday, January 29th at Asia Town Center (3820 Superior Avenue). It’s just part of the festivities on the schedule to celebrate Chinese New Year. There will also be traditional music and dance performances, kung fu demonstrations and not so traditional presentations of Asian hip hop and an eating contest. When you’ve had your fill of firecrackers and food, check out the big Asia Food Company supermarket and the Bai Wei Herbal Store, both part of this up and coming urban mall.
This is the Year of the Rabbit, according to the Chinese astrological calendar. So there’s also a contest for best homemade bunny suit- winner takes home a $100 prize. You still have time to whip up some cute floppy ears.
