Beginning at 4 p.m., members from the Chinese Senior Citizens Society and the Chinese Heritage Foundation will be on hand for fortune telling and distributing red envelopes that help usher in good luck for the New Year.
Children can take home a drawing of their name printed in traditional Chinese calligraphy.
A traditional Chinese lion dance will commence at 7 p.m., circling the Market with graceful movements and magnificent colors, to help ring in the year of the Ox.
