Chinese New Year festivities are set to commence

Spectacular giant lanterns representing animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac will take over some of Sydney’s most popular locations as part of next year’s Sydney Chinese New Year Festival.

City of Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said Lunar Lanterns, the first exhibition of its kind in Australia, will mark the 20th anniversary of the festival and its evolution from a small community event to the largest Lunar New Year celebration outside China.

“As Sydney embarks on a period of transformation, we are using this opportunity to revitalise and reimagine one of Sydney’s most-loved festivals to make it bigger and better than ever before,” the Lord Mayor said. Lunar Lanterns is a contemporary take on a centuries-old tradition, with some lanterns standing multiple storeys high, located throughout the city from Circular Quay to Chinatown from 6–14 February 2016.

Lanterns will flank the entrance to Circular Quay, transform the business heart of Martin Place and illuminate the bustling streets of Chinatown, allowing everyone to follow the trail to find their zodiac sign and bringing the summer nights to life in a uniquely Australian celebration of the Lunar New Year.

Lunar Lanterns will be one of the highlight events of Sydney’s Chinese New Year celebrations which will run from 6–21 February.

The festival will include favourite events like the Dragon Boat races, Lunar Feasts and more than 70 associated events.

The City is also planning a series of events to mark the 30th anniversary of Sydney’s sister-city relationship with Guangzhou. Since it began in Sydney, the City has produced 108 events for the Chinese New Year Festival, supported more than 600 associated events and hosted 10 delegations from China to be part of the celebrations.

The festival now attracts more than 600,000 visitors to more than 80 events across the city, also making it one of the most popular events in Sydney’s calendar.
