Themed “Ushering in a Great Year,” the Rat is the first animal of the 12 Chinese Zodiac Animals, thus, the Year of the Rat signifies a new cycle and a new beginning. We welcome you to Chinatown to immerse yourself in the festive celebrations and to experience the beauty of the Chinese culture and traditions.
