LUNAR NEW YEAR GALA & EVENT
The Greater Cincinnati Chinese Chamber of Commerce held this major event to welcome the coming of the Lunar New Year at Kingsgate Marriott at University of Cincinnati. It was a wonderful opportunity to observe one of the most important holidays in the Asian culture. We celebrated along with our chamber members and representatives from all over the Greater Cincinnati business community.

The Year of the Horse 2014 is fast approaching. Granted — now that it’s Dec. 17 — Christmas and New Year’s Day are even closer, but in about a month’s time, we will see the arrival of the Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year. While the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky might have other smaller, more intimate Lunar New Year celebrations , our event should prove to be the biggest Lunar New Year bash around.
