It’s the longest celebration in the Chinese calendar, and for 2014 it’s the year of the horse. Lisa Mateo was live at the Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook in South Setauket with a closer look into the celebration.
Performances included professional Chinese folklore singer, Arthur Lai, children from the Shaolin Kung Fu Studios in Rocky Point, NY (http://www.longislandshaolin.com/), a Lion Dance from Rik Kellerman’s Ten Tigers Kung-Fu Academy, Huntington, NY (http://ten-tigers.com/), dancers from Chinese Center on Long Island, Inc., West Hempstead, NY (http://ccli.yolasite.com/), and help from the Suffolk County Asian-American Advisory Board (http://www.scaaab.org/).
