Celebrating the Year of the Tiger

Tonight we joined 300 other people to celebrate Chinese New Year at a restaurant in Chinatown. The event was our annual FCC Chinese New Year Celebration and this year I chaired the event. There were crafts for the kids, a raffle with 25 amazing prizes, a Chinese marketplace, Chinese dance performances, professional lion dancers, a chance for kids to do the lion dance with real costumes and a children's lantern parade led by Ms. Chinatown. There was also lots and lots of great Chinese food.

Kenna and Michal had an absolute blast and were so excited to wear their new Chinese New Year dresses and jackets and have fancy "Chinese New Year hair."
