Who says your New Year’s resolution has to coincide with the American celebration? Revisit those resolutions for Chinese New Year, which began on Thursday (Feb. 3).
If you’re not a fan of making promises to get fit, quit smoking or better organize your life, you can resolve to have more fun by attending the Chinese New Year Festival sponsored by the Tulane Chinese Students and Scholars Association.
The 2011 festival celebrates the Year of the Rabbit and kicks off today with a week-long spring market in the Lavin Bernick Center from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily. While the main act for the Chinese New Year party on Sunday (Feb. 13) in McAlister Auditorium remains under wraps, yours truly has confirmed that the guest performers are indeed a troupe of Chinese acrobats!
