It’s January, and it’s cold and kinda blah: we need a reason to party! With that in mind, head on down to the Harbourfront Centre to ring in the traditional Asian Lunar New Year with a two-day LunarFest Celebration. Equine-themed to reflect the Year of the Horse, the event will include theatre productions, performances by Ho Deng Music Ensemble, dumpling and tea samples, a giant rocking horse, gorgeous lanterns, games, crafts, and much more for attendees of all ages.
