Fireworks, lion dances, martial arts displays and a fashion parade will help ring in the Lunar New Year at a street party in Chinatown this Saturday.
Adelaide’s multicultural communities will showcase their music, dance and food at the event, which marks the start of the 15-day Lunar New Year festival on February 3.
According to the Chinese Zodiac 2011 is the Year of the Rabbit.
Chinese astrology says people born under the rabbit (for example 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987 and 1999) make ideal diplomats or politicians, and have grace, culture and beautiful manners.
The free street party on Moonta St, between Gouger and Grote streets, starts at 11am.
