Chinese New Year’s celebration Saturday at North Tahoe

Special to the Bonanza

Coldwell Banker staff will join students with SNC’s Asian Cultural Forum for Saturday’s Chinese New Year’s event.

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — On Saturday, Feb. 28, from 3 to 7 p.m., Sierra Nevada College and Coldwell Banker Select Real Estate will present Incline Village's first-ever Chinese New Year's Celebration.

This event will immerse you into Chinese cultural traditions, including the singing of Chinese New Year's songs, the art of calligraphy, a tae kwon do demonstration, and more.

A traditional "Lion Dance" will be performed during the festivities. The dance mimics a lion's movements in the wild — the moves are derived from various Asian martial arts.

Only two to three dancers, whose faces are rarely seen, perform the dance.

The celebration is the brainchild of SNC students from China who have organized the Asian Cultural Forum, a student club at SNC.

They aim to share the rich elements of Asian cultures with the Incline Village community in new and exciting ways.
