Lunar New Year Celebrated At Borough Hall

The arrival of “The Year of the Dog” was celebrated with great fanfare during the Lunar New Year event that Queens Borough President Melinda Katz hosted in the Helen Marshall Cultural Center in Queens Borough Hall on March 6. The Borough President is shown here participating in the Lunar New Year ritual of symbolically feeding oranges to costumed performers dancing a traditional lion dance. Citations were also awarded during the event to distinguished members of the community, while prizes were presented to the winners of the Borough President’s second annual Lunar New Year photo contest.
