New Lunar YearMarking the arrival of the New Lunar Year, the Chinese community in Cuba’s capital Havana this weekend launched celebrations. The New Lunar year falls on January 28.

 

Havana’s Chinatown, one of the oldest in Latin America, on Saturday hosted the opening of an exhibit on the Chinese zodiac and 2017, the Year of the Rooster.

 

The exhibit features 15 large-scale paintings of the 12 signs of the zodiac, each represented by an animal, and other iconic images of the Chinese culture, such as the phoenix and the panda.

 

It was the first of several events leading to what is also known as the Spring Festival observed by the Chinese people.

 

Revelers gathered in the district’s House of Chinese Arts and Traditions, which hosts conferences, book presentations and other cultural events, including the traditional dragon dance performed here by students of the Cuban School of Wushu.

 

Amid the celebrations which will continue through Feb. 12, China and Cuba will also mark 170 years of Chinese presence in Cuba.
