Come and celebrate the start of the Lunar New Year
together with friends and family in Chinatown!
2020 is the year of the Metal Rat, starting from January 25
, 2020 to February 11
, 2021. The Year of the Rat is the first zodiac sign in the Chinese zodiac cycle. Rats are quick-witted, resourceful, and smart but lack courage. With rich imaginations and sharp observations, they can take advantage of various opportunities well. In Chinese culture, rats represent working diligently and thriftiness, so people born in a Rat year are thought to be wealthy and prosperous.
