Come celebrate Lunar New Year with your Somerset Neighbors!
The Somerset Community Association has invited an authentic lion and dragon dance troupe and Kung Fu masters to perform at Somerset Elementary on February 17 at 2:00pm. The event will include a lion dance, dragon dance with drums and a Kung Fu performance by the Shaolin master and his students! There will also be raffle prize drawings!
Did you know that Lunar New Year is celebrated by more people than any other holiday on earth? Lunar New Year marks the first day of the lunisolar calendar based on the cycles of the moon. This year it occurs on February 10, 2024 and begins the Year of the Dragon, as determined by the Chinese Zodiac. Join us to celebrate the beginning of the Year of the Dragon!
You are welcome to “feed” the lion performers (suggested tip amount $1-2). A limited amount of lucky red envelopes for this tradition will be provided by the SCA.
