Community members gathered on Saturday morning outside at the Frisco Ranch Shopping Center off Preston Road in south Frisco to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
It was a family-friendly event featuring traditional dragon and lion dances, musical performance sand the announcement of winners of the K-12 art competition sponsored by the Frisco Arts Foundation.
The event was sponsored by the Frisco Asian Community Empowerment organization and the Frisco Inclusion Committee.
Lunar New Year is a celebration of the arrival of spring and the beginning of a new year on the lunisolar calendar. It is the most important holiday in China, and it is also widely celebrated in South Korea, Vietnam, and countries with a significant overseas Chinese population. While the official dates encompassing the holiday vary by culture, those celebrating consider it the time of the year to reunite with immediate and extended family.
