More Great Photos of Gladney's New Year Celebration!

This year’s Gladney Chinese New Year celebration kept everyone on their toes as drummers and dragons from the community frequently passed through the Jing Fong restaurant! The children excitedly climbed onto their parents’ shoulders to catch a glimpse of the dragons weaving throughout the restaurant! While the children enjoyed themselves with various activities, their parents had a chance to reacquaint with old friends and make new friends. Everyone enjoyed the performances of a traditional Chinese dance troupe who performed fan and handkerchief dances.

The Chinese New Year is a holiday celebrating reunion and thanksgiving. Each year we are honored to share with families in this important holiday. We hope that everyone enjoys a healthy and prosperous Year of the Tiger.
Here are some more great shots of the party in Manhattan's Chinatown on Feb. 20th. At the bottom is a picture of Kathryn and Sarah, today, on the last day of the Spring Festival. They were unable to attend the party this year, but since they are from Cantonese-speaking Guangdong province, they wish everyone "Gung Hay Fat Choy!"
