One of the most cheerful, colorful, and tasty celebrations is coming up: the Lunar New Year. With a large Asian community in town, there are of course quite a few events to celebrate. Some, such as the NOVA Tet (Vietnamese New Year) celebration, the Eden Center Tet events, and the Fair Oaks Mall Lunar New Year festival, are large, all-day festivities with food, music, dance, and cultural activities. There is also an evening Chinese New Year Gala. But families looking for something simpler or shorter, especially for younger children, will be glad to know that Fairfax County parks and libraries are also offering Chinese New Year events.
