The event is free and open to the public, and includes a cultural extravaganza presented by Master Ben Seng Au and his Shaolin Arts Academy.

The event will include firecrackers, followed by a martial arts exhibition and lion dancers. Red “li-shi” envelopes will be available at the event to “feed” the lions in the hopes of obtaining good luck during the new year.

This coming Chinese year is the year of the Green Wooden Sheep (also known as the Ram or Goat).
