Midtown Chinese New Year — Friday Evening


Midtown Global Market will bring a taste of Asia to south Minneapolis as it hosts its Chinese New Year Celebration on Friday, January 27, 2011, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., as part of Friday Family Night.  Members from the Chinese Heritage Foundation will be on-hand for fortune telling and distributing red envelopes — traditionally believed to usher in good luck for the New Year. Children can also take home their name written in traditional Chinese calligraphy. A donation to the Chinese Heritage Foundation is suggested for these services.  A traditional Chinese Lion Dance will also occur, circling the Market with graceful movements and magnificent colors, to help ring in the year of the Dragon!
