Chinese New Year in Paris Chinese New Year in Paris

Ring in the year of the Rabbit in Paris!  Chinese New Year is a festival not to be missed in Paris.  For a few unforgettable days in late January and early February, the City of Light will be overrun with colorful dragons snaking their way through the streets, dancers in traditional makeup carrying parasols, merrymakers setting off firecrackers, and of course rabbits everywhere!

The epicenter of the Chinese New Year festivities is the 13th arrondissement, home to Paris’s Chinatown—the largest Chinatown in Europe. Starting on January 28, the denizens of this quarter will begin their celebrations.  These include art exhibits, concerts, lectures, and a kung fu workshop for children. Read the entire story here…»
