Sydney will once again be pulling out all the stops to celebrate Chinese New Year, with various events planned throughout the city. The festival will officially be launched on 6 February, continuing for three days over the course of the weekend.
However, the celebrations won’t stop there, as the Harbour City has a busy schedule of events lasting right through until 21 February. Expect to see everything from Dragon Boat races to plenty of authentic food to mark the beginning of the Year of the Monkey.
A number of key buildings will be illuminated to signal the start of the celebrations, and people with real estate in St George and other parts of the city are invited to get involved.
“Bathing the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge in red light welcomes good fortune for the Year of the Monkey and is the perfect way to launch one of the biggest Lunar New Year celebrations outside of China,” said lord mayor Clover Moore.
This follows on from the success of Sydney’s New Year celebrations, which were once again hailed a success. Millions of people tuned into their television sets to see the fireworks, while many others positioned themselves throughout the Harbour City to witness them first hand.
It’s estimated that as much as $133million was generated for Sydney businesses, as thousands of people saw in 2016 from the New South Wales capital.
