Residents of the Sydney area know how seriously the New South Wales capital takes Chinese New Year celebrations, and the Kogarah City Council is no different.
In addition to the numerous community events that have been occurring in Sydney and will continue until February 9, owners of property in Carlton will be glad to hear that 2014 marks the first time Chinese New Year will be celebrated at the Jubilee Stadium.
" In recent years, Kogarah’s Chinese New Year event has managed to outgrow the Kogarah Town Square," the official council website states.
"The new venue allows this cultural celebration to incorporate both international and local performers, include the inaugural ‘Kogarah Chinese New Year Cup’ Soccer Competition, continue the popular Lantern Riddle Competition, extend the length of the event, accommodate more market stalls, provide adequate parking and more facilities for the audience."
As the council stated, this year's celebration is looking to be bigger and better than every, and represents just one more reason why Carlton is such a great community to live in.
This free community event will take place on Saturday, February 8 at Jubilee Stadium from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
