“Chinatown is an integral part of Southside and Chinese New Year is a welcome celebration as it brightens up a normally quite gloomy time of the year. The celebrations continue to improve and attract growing numbers of new and returning visitors to the area.
It’s fantastic that the event helps us both celebrate an important part of this district’s culture and we look forward to the festival growing and becoming more popular year on year.”
Julia Chance – BID Manager
