Media to parade in the Chinese New Year
January 3, 2013 by James
Chinese New Year is the biggest day of the year in China and the most important festival in Chinese culture. More and more often the holiday is celebrated outside of China as the population spreads over the world. One popular event that celebrates Chinese New Year in the United States is a parade in Media.
The parade features lion dancers and other traditional Chinese elements. It will be an excellent event for those in Media to learn about another culture and to help celebrate an important annual event in Chinese culture. It can also be good for local businesses who might want to hold special promotions on the day, such as giving those attending the parade a special discount or supplying various Chinese delicacies. Those Media businesses can work with local printing companies to help promote the parade and let the community know of any special events they will be holding at the same time.
Each Chinese New Year is classified with one of 12 animals and 2013 will be the year of the snake. This creature represents great attention to detail which results in progress, and those in business are reminded to be careful and to plan ahead during the coming year. For those born in the year of the snake, Monday is supposed to be their lucky day.
The Chinese New Year Parade in Media will take place on February 9 along State Street. It will begin at 11:00 am and end at Margaret Kuo’s restaurant.
