MIMS Chinese New Year Festival 2023

Chinese New Year is the most important holiday on the Chinese calendar. Each year, MIMS PTO hosts a festival to celebrate the lunar new year with our families and to raise money for the school. The event usually takes place on a Saturday during (or immediately following) the 15 days of the Lunar New Year. Look for performances from the students, a dragon dance, great food, inflatables or other fun children’s activities, and more. Students may also have a Chinese New Year party during the week.
