Watch live cultural performances of traditional Asian new year parades. Embrace the bright vivid colors and rich sounding music. And make sure your kids don’t miss out on Kung Fu Panda’s Dragon Warrior Training. They can personally train with Po and become a dragon warrior. Keep your eye out for the Minions from Despicable Me in traditional Chinese attire or the Mandarin-speaking Megatron from Transformers. A great place to savor Asian dishes is at Mr. Ping’s Noodle Shop–meet & greet with Po’s father Mr. Ping included. This celebration is only until Feb 17, so make sure to secure your tickets here soon!
