Lunar New Year Celebrations Underway

Lunar New Year celebrations are being held around the area.

Today is the Chinese New Year, and some local shopping centers are helping to ring in the year of the pig.

Over the weekend Tysons Corner Center held its Lunar New Year celebration, with cultural performances, plus arts and crafts, in front of a crowd of shoppers and onlookers.

Today the Eden Center in Falls Church (6751 Wilson Blvd) is holding the first of two days of new year celebrations, starting at 11 a.m. The family-friendly, midday festivities will feature a dragon dance and a flag ceremony. The celebrations continue on Sunday, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., with a lion dance, entertainers, balloon sculptures, face painting and “other surprises and giveaways.”
