Bid adieu to the Year of the Rabbit and usher in the Year of the Dragon this Friday with a celebration to Ring in the Chinese New Year at the Dallas Arts District. The Crow Collection of Asian Art has put together a fete full of arts and crafts like decorating traditional Red Envelopes, and making Illuminated Lanterns and Dancing Dragon Puppets. Kids can have their faces painted like a dragon and enjoy the music of Chinese Harps along with a Kung Fu Showcase and a Luminous Dragon Dance Parade. Food Trucks will line up along Flora Street during the festival. The official event site lists Nammi Truck, Ssahm BBQ, Greenhouse Truck and Easy Slider Truck but we've heard that City Street Grille, Cup Cakin Machine and Ruthie's Rolling Cafe are joining the celebration. The festival time is 6pm-11pm; click here to see a full list of scheduled activities.
