The Mezmerizing Chinese New Year Festival in Portland That You Don’t Want To Miss

For two weeks, Portland’s Lan Su Chinese Garden will host one of the biggest Chinese New Year Festivals in town. This fun event features a variety of entertainment — including lion dances, martial arts presentations, and cultural performances — and will welcome in the Year of the Dog. The family-friendly event is a wonderful experience for locals and visitors alike, and a great way to learn more about the festive celebration.
