“Created especially for children ages 0 to 6 and their families/caregivers, Let’s Read Outside is an exciting, outdoor literary adventure to get the weekend started right! All kids in attendance will receive a free book!
In February, we’ll be enjoying stories about the Lunar New Year and doing fun activities inspired by this beloved holiday that’s celebrated widely across Asia. This event will happen rain or shine. If it’s raining, dress in your warmest clothes and we’ll make accommodations. Plus, treats to eat and more fun surprise activities!
Commonly known as the Spring Festival in China, Lunar New Year is a fifteen-day celebration marked by many traditions. At home, families decorate windows with red paper cuttings and adorn doors with couplets expressing auspicious wishes for the new year. Shopping for holiday sundries in open-air markets and cleaning the house are also beloved traditions. The Lunar New Year’s Eve reunion dinner is the highlight that kicks off the holiday, a feast with a spread of symbolic dishes, such as a whole fish representing abundance, that bring good luck and fortune. The fifteenth and final day of the holiday is the Lantern Festival, during which people have tangyuan, or sweet glutinous rice balls, and children carry lanterns around the neighborhood at night to mark the end of the celebration.
This is a bilingual event, with books read in English and Spanish. We do require that you register ahead of time in the link below. See you at Bayer!”
