Red is the colour for January. The Chinese community throws the biggest festive celebration of the year as we welcome the arrival of the year of the rat.  The Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival, the Chinese New Year is undoubtedly the most important event in the Chinese calendar. Although It’s still very wintry, but the holiday marks the end of the coldest days. The arrival of spring symbolises: new beginnings and fresh starts, this is the time for getting together with family and friends, serving feasts, and wishing one another prosperity for the year to come.

Kick off the new year by joining in the parade at Senado Square. Get your cameras ready for the star of the show - the iconic dragon dance, rumoured to the longest one in the world. Watch dancers, floats and drummers make their way through Portuguese buildings to the ruins of St. Paul.
