Trenton Kicks Off Inaugural Chinese New Year Celebration
TRENTON, N.J. – The City of Trenton will be celebrating Chinese New Year on Tuesday, February 5 with a street fair along South Warren Street between East State and Lafayette Streets beginning at 4 p.m.
“2019 is the year of the pig, which symbolizes wealth and fortune,” said Mayor W. Reed Gusciora. “I think it’s appropriate, considering the good fortune I believe our City will see in 2019. This celebration will be an exciting kickoff for what I hope will become a great annual event in Trenton, and I invite everyone to come out and enjoy the festivities.”
Vendors will have booths along the street with food, games, performances, and more. Restaurants along S Warren will be offering unique Chinese fusion dishes, and the street will be lined with lanterns and other decorations. A children’s dragon parade is also expected.
The event is free and open to all. For vendor or sponsorship information, please email Andrew Fenwick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
