2017 – Chinese New Year Carnival

Supported by Townsville City Council, the Townsville Chinese Club hosted the Chinese New Year Carnival on the Strand on 10 February 2017. The Chinese New Year Market ran by HitFms Food Truck Fiesta starts from 6:00pm to 9:30pm, Cultural Performance started from 6:30pm to 9pm. The Carnival provided a platform for people to know more about the Chinese culture through lion and dragon dancing, music, dance and food. Apart from Chinese cultural demonstrations, we also had performers from other cultures such as Philippines, Samoan, Pacifica, and French lining up to perform in the Carnival. Aspects of different cultures were brought into dialogue through our Chinese New Year celebration. Thousands of people joined us to celebrate the Chinese New Year togather!
