Gather with loved ones to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit at Bellevue Square’s Center Court Jan. 14. This marks the 12th year The Bellevue Collection and Seattle Chinese Culture and Arts Association have put on the event on the Eastside.
The day-long gathering will feature performances, crafts, displays, and more to honor centuries-old traditions. The celebration also will include traditional and contemporary music, dance, and fine arts, as well as a Chinese Lion and Dragon Parade performed by the International Lion Dance and Martial Arts team.
“The celebration of Lunar New Year is one of the most dramatic and beautiful events with amazing garments, elegant dances, and spectacular color,” Jennifer Leavitt, the Bellevue Collection's vice president of marketing, said in a release. “The event returns in person this year to celebrate our richly diverse community and foster a greater understanding of traditions that are enjoyed during this celebration. This is truly an event the whole family can enjoy.”
From Jan. 13-22, attendees can additionally pick a Lucky Lunar Scratch Card at Bellevue Square’s guest services desk for a special dining offer from one of the Asian-inspired restaurants of the Dining District or for a chance to win an $80 Bellevue Collection gift card.
