Doh! Just saw this thread! I had a question for you in the other thread?
Love the Asian festival.
I dunno if you have been in previous years but it seems it has been moved up earlier this year?

Since the Chinese New Year is based on a lunar calendar the actual date it falls on varies and the Asian Festival here in town is usually on a weekend nearest that date. Last year the festival fell on February 20th and the CNY was February 14th. In 2009 the festival was held on January 31st and the CNY was January 26th. The actual CNY this year is February 3rd.

It is going to be so good, can't wait. The Dragon Dance is always the highlight for me but so are the lectures and shows that occur inside the building of the actual Institute of Texan Cultures.

I didn't know that it was based on the lunary calendar. Hello, silly me, thank you!

I'm just a huge fan of the Chinese New Year. My dream is to one day visit a CNY celebration in Singapore.
