Dancers, yo-yo spinners and gifted artists helped ring in the Chinese New Year at the Delaware Art Museum’s annual family event on Saturday. The celebration included a lion dance (the lion is meant to scare off bad spirits), folk dances, Chinese yo-yo performances, traditional Chinese art activities, and a museum-wide scavenger hunt. Students from the Chinese American Community Center Lion and Folk Dance Group and Yo-Yo Club, the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company, the Chinese School of Delaware, Tower Hill School and Wilmington Friends School performed and led activities such as dough figuring, paper lantern workshops and Chinese calligraphy. The Lunar New Year is now known as the Year of the Sheep, the eighth animal in the Chinese zodiac’s 12-year cycle of creatures.
