A Event to Remember



Rain doesn’t stop me and my family to join the crowds at the Wellington’s biggest Chinese New Year celebrations over the weekend at the Frank Kitts Park.

As early as 11Am, we went to TSB Bank Arena, Queen Warf which jam-packed by more than 10,000 visitors for the Asia market which features authentic Chinese foods, traditional massage, crafts, merchandise, information stands among others.

My son got excited when he saw the Shaolin Kungu Performance Group of Songshan,China executed and performed their martial arts skills .

The Shaolin Kungfu Performance Group herald from the Songshan Shaolin Temple’s Wushu Training Centre. Their impressive reputation has led them to invitations to perform and teach in over 80 countries, covering Europe, Africa, Asia and the Pacific region.

Their performances reflect four themes; Shaolin Thirteen Cudgel Monks’, Combining Zen and Wushu into One’, Shaolin Soul’ and ‘Shaolin Powerful Wind’. If you want to see again the Shaolin monks, a ticketed performance is scheduled on Feb 16 at Michael Fowler Centre.

After the Asian Market, we went to Courtnay Place to watch the Chinese New Year street parade led by five giant rats mounted on the roof of porsches and a giant inflatable dragon.

But if you are from Auckland, the 2008 Chinese Lantern Festival will kick off on Friday 22 to Sunday 24 Februay at Albert Park and in Christchurch on Saturday 1 to Sunday 2 March at Victoria Square.
