Happy Chinese New Year from Jordan Springs
From Chinese lion dancers and family activities to entertainment and mouth-watering food, the community of Jordan Springs celebrated Chinese New Year in style on Saturday, January 28.
From 10am to 12pm, residents and visitors to Jordan Springs enjoyed a morning filled with live entertainment, food stalls, children activities and games at the Jordan Springs Town Centre to welcome the Year of the Rooster.
The Jordan Springs Chinese New Year celebrations included a live performance from Chinese lion dancers, face painting, airbrushed tattoos, and Chinese cuisine.
There was a range of activities for the whole family, with children invited to create their own Chinese New Year calendar and themed colouring-in stencils.
Arthur Ilias, Lendlease Communities General Manager NSW/ACT, said the event was designed to celebrate diversity within the Jordan Springs community by enjoying the flavours and festivities of the Chinese New Year.
“We’re excited to welcome the Year of the Rooster with all our residents and wish the community good health and prosperity in the year ahead,” said Mr Ilias.
“We encourage everyone to come along, mingle with other residents and locals, and experience the festivities and celebrations of the wonderful multicultural event that is Chinese New Year.
“Lendlease is committed to supporting a range of cultural and community groups at Jordan Springs, and we look forward to hosting many more cultural celebrations, activities and events in 2017.”
