TULSA, Okla. — A Lunar New Year festival is being held Friday night at the University of Tulsa (TU), near 11th and Harvard.

Lunar New Year is an important festival in some Asian countries, where residents celebrate the new year with wishes for good health, wealth and fortune.

The event has food, activity booths and a wishing tree where people can write wishes and hang them on the tree. The event will also have performances from the China Roses and the Hung Viet Lion Dance Group, which will perform their signature Lion Dance and an exclusive Dragon Dance to celebrate the Year of the Dragon.

The event is being held at the Allen Chapman Student Union and ends at 9 p.m.

Entry to the event is free for students and $9 for non-TU attendees. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the local APIDA to support Asian community building in the Tulsa area.

This event is sponsored by TU’s American Asian Student Association, Vietnamese Student Association and Association of International Students, as well as others.
