[Lexington Minuteman] Lexington welcomes year of the Rat with Lunar New Year show

Over the weekend, Lexington welcomed the new Lunar Year with a special show at Cary Hall. It was the culmination of months of hard work and dedication by over 100 volunteers.

The beginning of a new decade, and of a new era of Chinese culture in Lexington, was marked last weekend in Cary Hall. Hundreds gathered for the annual Lunar New Year Celebration Gala, presented by the Chinese American Association of Lexington. It is one of the largest cultural events in town each year. This year’s celebration involved more of Lexington than ever before, event chair and director Jimin Ren said.

“We believe in sharing our culture, but at the same time learning from others. It’s a good platform to really bring everyone together,” she said.
