January 26: Lunar New Year Celebration
Time: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Closed to the public
The Pan-Asian Laboratory Staff (PALS) is pleased to announce that our annual signature event, the Lunar New Year Celebration, will take place on Thursday, January 26 from 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. in the auditorium.
Lunar New Year is an important holiday celebrated in many asian cultures to mark the beginning of the new year on the lunar calendar. The new year can fall anytime between January 21st and February 20th. Each year is represented by one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac, and 2017 is the Year of the Rooster.
The PALS celebration will showcase a variety of asian cultures and cuisines. The highlight of the event features performances by several local groups, including a lion dance ensemble, MIT Bhangra, and the Angkor Dance Troupe. There will also be a variety of finger foods available, including dumplings, samosas, sushi rolls, and spring rolls.
We encourage everyone to attend this event and help us ring in the new year! The first 100 attendees will receive a special red envelope.
