As the Year of the Rat ends and the Year of the Dragon approaches, preparations to celebrate Chinese New Year in Marlborough are well underway.
Bamboo Garden Restaurant is excited to host Marlburians this Friday 9 and Sunday 11 February to help share this special cultural highlight.
Marlborough’s Chinese community are counting down the days to celebrate, while adding to an already action-packed weekend of events throughout the region.
Bamboo Garden’s Bunga Krataitong says sharing what the occasion is all about is a way to broaden cultural horizons in a meaningful and fun way.
“Chinese New Year is like Christmas for Chinese people across the world, where everyone comes together with their family to celebrate,” she says
“We’re looking forward to sharing all of the joy and love that comes with Chinese New Year with our neighbours and Marlburians as a whole.”
Plans for the occasion include performances from the Marlborough Chinese Association and local Chinese community, including a special Dragon Dance and drum performance.
Alongside, there will be plenty of information on hand for people to discover more about Chinese culture.
With delicious special dishes, dragon dance performances at 6pm on Friday and Sunday and a drum dance performance on Friday at 7pm, and the renown Bamboo Garden hospitality, the Year of the Dragon celebrations promises plenty of food and cultural fun for Marlburians.
