  • 25 Jan 2020
  • 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
  • John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, Columbia Point, Boston, MA 02125

Enjoy a traditional Chinese lion dance ceremony with origins dating back more than a thousand years. As a guardian creature coming from the mountains to drive away evil spirits, the lion is believed to bring positive and celebratory energy, and give blessings, good fortunes, happiness, success, and prosperity to all.

The Celebrate! series, appropriate for family audiences and children ages 5 and up, highlights America’s rich cultural diversity through the arts. This program is tied directly to President and Mrs. Kennedy's concern for and support of the arts and culture in a democratic society. Thanks to generous support from the Highland Street Foundation, Martin Richard Foundation, and Mass Cultural Council, all performances are free and take place in the Stephen E. Smith Center at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum (Columbia Point, Boston, MA 02125).
