The “2014 Year of the Horse Chinese New Year Carnival” - a spectacular and colorful event features traditional Dragon & Lion Dance, festival performances, martial art demonstration, folk art demonstration, festival food, games, artworks exhibition, lucky draws, silent auction, meet and greet the God of Fortune and an indoor bazaar of trade booths selling all kinds of gifts and festival items. This year, we will establish a theme project, the ''Bun-Fun-Tree'' - a 15' tall tree-like construction covered with more than two thousand pieces of Chinese buns stamped with the wordings ''Ping An 平安'' (Safe and Sound), ''Ji Xiang 吉祥'' (Propitious) and ''Fu 福'' (Good Fortune). This project is meant to bring blessings to the general public and wish everyone safe and sound, propitious and good fortune in the Year of the Horse.
