Chinese Arts Alliance of Nashville is teaming up with many partners to host the Chinsee New Year @ Hillsboro Village at the Vanderbilt University's Corner Park at 21st Ave and Blakemore Ave. There will be professional jugglers, Chinese dance, music & songs, Chinese Yo-Yo, Chinese naming, arts & crafts for children, bamboo dance, martial arts, Chinese language students’ presentations in addition to the traditional Chinese lion dance and dragon dance.
We also will set up a piglets-adoption station while we are welcoming the Chinese Zodiact Year of Pig. People who are born at the Pig Year tends to be diligent, compassionate, and generous. They have great concentration: once they set a goal, they will devote all their energy to achieving it.
This is a free event, open to the public of all ages. Dragon Parade around the village will conclude the celebration starting at 2:50 PM. We will use red streamers, percussive instrument accompany our 60-foot long dragon making cheerful noise and bring blessings to everyone! Asian food vendors will be there too!
Please let us know that you are coming so as to plan. In case of rains or heavy snow, we will move to indoor facility.
Happy New Year to everyone!
