Welcome the Year of the Rabbit and celebrate the Lunar New Year at Bryant Park! Families can craft their own drums and paper lanterns, join a ribbon dancing class, and watch a Lion Dance and other traditional musical performances by the New York Chinese Cultural Center.
Wander between Overlook and the Rink deck for a morning of Lunar New Year festivities.
