RICHARDSON – If you’ve driven around the Richardson CORE District and the Lockwood District, then you have noticed all the red lanterns outside several businesses.

The lanterns, which represent wealth, fame, and prosperity in China, have been placed to help celebrate the annual Chinese New Year Celebration taking place Saturday, Feb. 5 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the DFW Chinatown (located at 400 N. Greenville Ave.)

The event includes a variety of culinary offerings, vendors, cultural performances and activities for all ages.

The Chinese New Year Festival is presented by the City of Richardson, in partnership with its CORE District members, the Dallas Chinese Community Center and DFW Chinatown.

Parking will be available onsite at DFW Chinatown, and an event bus will also provide transportation from the DART Arapaho Center Station from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
