Happy Chinese New Year, Salida!

Salida Creativity Lab and area students present Happy Chinese New Year, Salida!, a parade and multicultural celebration, free for the community, at the Longfellow Elementary gymnasium on February 4, 2017, at 6:00pm.

Throughout the month of January, Salida Creativity Lab will work with over 200 students. Children ages 4 to 14 from schools across the community will work together to create dragon-inspired movement, costumes, and props culminating in a Chinese New Year parade and celebration for the community. After the parade, the community is invited to stay for new year activities and crafts, listen to music, and enjoy a multicultural potluck. The event is free and open to the public, and will be a lively and fun event for the whole family!
