Celebrate the Year of the Dog with Families with Children from China New England in Boston's Chinatown!

Calling all adoptees, their families and friends: come celebrate the Year of the Dog with us in Boston's Chinatown!

11:00 - 3:00 at the Pao Arts Center


On February 25 Boston's Chinatown hosts the biggest Lunar New Year parade in New England with troupes of colorful lion dance dancers ringing in the Year of the Dog.

FCCNE will be at the new Pao Arts Center in Chinatown with BCNC (Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center) from 11:00am - 3:00pm. Come huddle indoors and have your creative and artistic impulses flourish during the New Year! Drop in for free family-friendly activities including lantern making and Chinese macrame. Kids 5 - 12 years old can participate in drop-in Lion Dance workshops at 12:00, 12:30, and 1:00 pm.

Visit the FCCNE room there where we will have snacks and low key Lunar New Year activities. Meet and connect with each other and warm up in between watching the lion dances on the streets of Chinatown. All are welcome! We want to see you there - adoptees of all ages - college students, teens, children - their families and friends! Come by yourself or with a friend and meet FCCNE board members, families and adoptees - we look forward to seeing you.
