Hola,

Does anyone know the date of the New Chinese Year in (the tiny area ) of Chinatown Belgrano?
It would be nice to go there with a few people (and better with s.o acquainted with the Chinese culture!)
Regards
Christophe

The official date of CNY worldwide is Jan. 26.

In Belgrano, there will be a Chinese New Year parade this Sunday, Jan. 20 hosted by the Taiwanese Cultural Association. I saw it on a flyer when down there last Sunday.

Yup.

I talked to Restaurante Lailai's owner this past week and she confirmed it. Sunday.

Anybody want to go PM me. I'm an American but speak Mandarin.

Someone told me today that last year there were 2 Chinese New Year´s celbrations: One by the Taiwanese community and one by the Chinese (mainland)community (two different sundays, same dragon :))

This may be the reason why some people think it is 18th and some 25th´......
It may well be that they both days are new year´s celebrations...
