Riverland Dubai to celebrate Chinese New Year

DUBAI, February 5, 2018

Riverland Dubai, the multi-themed dining and retail district located at Dubai Parks and Resorts, will mark the Chinese New Year with a 15-day celebration.

The “Chinese New Year Temple Fair” will run from February 10-24 with various Chinese cultural activities, entertainment and decorations to commemorate the Year of the Dog.

Guests will enjoy a host of Chinese cultural events and performances, including a traditional Chinese market, roaming acts, pasting couplets- which are one of the oldest traditions of celebration and represent wishes for a better New Year. The French Village zone within Riverland Dubai will be lit up with a Chinese lanterns display, and will host a favourite Chinese tradition - the red pocket tree - a beautiful wishing tree full of lucky red wishing cards and gifts which adults and children will equally enjoy. Moreover, the river will be decorated with 5 metre m long dragon which is a symbol of power, strength, and good luck in the Chinese culture.

Visitors will also experience an authentic Chinese market offering arts and crafts such as clay figurines, sugar paintings, coconut carvings, lacquer ware, in addition to various Chinese food & beverage options. The market will also feature themed roaming acts as well as puppet shows, folk theater, Sichuan opera and a spectacular firework show that will be held on February 15, 16 and 17 at 8:00pm.

Here at Riverland Dubai, we take pride in celebrating other cultures and recreating authentic experiences for our guests.
