2020 Lunar New Year Celebration
In the year 2020, the first day of the Lunar New Year will fall on January 25th. To highlight the fifteen-day celebrations and in welcoming the year of the Rat, Toronto Chinatown BIA will spearhead the celebrations with an opening ceremony in Dragon City Mall followed by a magnificent lantern exhibition, and a lineup of interactive games and performances to showcase the rich heritage of Asian traditions during the 2020 Lunar New Year Celebrations.
As per traditions, the Lantern Festival will come to mark the last day of the fifteen-day Lunar New Year celebrations where families come together and light up different colours and shapes of lanterns. Lanterns are iconic and have transcended time through generations in Asian culture. During the fifteen-day celebrations, temporary installations of lanterns will come to life in different shapes and colours will illuminate the Dragon City Mall at the heart of Chinatown.
