Celebrating the Chinese New Year at the Chinese New Year Gala

On February 23, 2015, Wayne State University held its first ever Chinese New Year Gala. The gala brought hundreds of people from different backgrounds together to celebrate an important holiday in Chinese culture. Wayne State University’s Chinese Student and Scholar Association and the Confucius Institute at WSU put the event together. It took three months to put the gala together. The gala was free for all those who attended, and a Chinese dinner was served. The gala lasted for four hours, with performances and games to celebrate the Lunar New Year. The gala was fun and had pleasurable entertainment. I loved that the gala included the Lebanon dancing and the Brazilian music because it showed that anyone can celebrate the Lunar New Year and not just Chinese people. I really enjoyed myself at the gala and feel that it provided me with additional insight into Asian culture. It was visually beautiful and I truly enjoyed the experience.
