If you do not know what to wear to attend a Lunar New Year celebration, something red is always the right choice on such occasions. The red color is always associated with “happiness and good fortune”. It is symbolic of fire and wards off evil spirits. The Asian enjoy decorating their houses with something red, e.g. red couplets on both sides of the gate; red paper-cuts on the window; red character “福 (fu)” on the door etc during the Spring Festival (the biggest holiday in China).

Dragon Parade Lunar New Year will fall on February 5th

You can enrich your festival experience with the Lunar New Year Celebrations in Florida. These Lunar New Year festivals feature cultural performances, festival decorations, foods and craft activities, and much more!
