Celebrate Chinese New Year at Broadway Fair

By Cassie Hart, Editor - Kids in Perth 04 Feb 2021


Chinese New Year celebrates the start of the traditional lunar calendar year.  Festivities include eating traditional food, giving out red packets for well wishes, hanging out lanterns, and watching a lion dance performance.  

This year Broadway Fair is joining in on the festivities and is the perfect place to bring your family for an evening of fun.  Located in the heart of Nedlands, Broadway Fair boasts an impressive range of delicious food and drink outlets, specialty stores and under over parking.  From 5pm on Friday February 19th, Broadway Fair will be filled with vibrant Chinese decorations, delicious aromas, and breathtaking traditional Lion Dance. Don’t forget your red packets to give to the lion for good luck. There will also be craft activities for the kids; take home an origami lantern or colour in and take home an ox mask to celebrate the Year of the Ox.
