Chinese New Year Lion Dance

Talin Market Hosts a Chinese Lion Dance to Bring in the Year of the Pig

Come enjoy a Lion Dance to celebrate Chinese New Year!

Chinese New Year is a very important occasion, and the Lion Dance is performed to bring good luck for the new year and chase away evil spirits.

During the performance, three huge, colorful lions are brought to life by the GDPT Quang Minh Lion Dace Team and their drummers. The lions love envelopes with donations in them — they eat them up!

The dance team will be performing over a dozen times around Albuquerque for Chinese New Year. Check out their Facebook page for the complete list of appearances.

ABQ Kids born this year will be Pigs (Boars). Though shy, Pigs have tremendous inner strength, and they never retreat once a goal has been set. They are honest, kind, and affectionate.
