Chinese New Year begins to be celebrated on February 8th in 2016. The Chinese New Year celebrations can last for about 15 days.

Street festivals featuring arts, entertainment and children’s activities.
Chinese New Year markets showcasing arts, crafts and food stalls.
Dancing, music and people wearing colourful costumes to welcome the Chinese New Year.
Vibrant displays of Chinese lanterns, firecrackers and fireworks.
Many Chinese Australian families spend Chinese New Year by gathering together for a festive meal.
Children often receive red envelopes with money (Hong Bao, Ang Pao, or Lai See).
