As the Chinese calendar turns to the Year of the Snake, the 9th annual Cairns New Year Street Festival will light up the city.
The festival celebrates the start of the Chinese New Year in style with a colourful blend of live entertainment, family activities and traditional festivities in the heart of Cairns. Highlights to look forward to this year include a huge vibrant street parade featuring the 12 animals of the zodiac and the breathtaking dragon and lion dances, an eclectic range of cultural displays and exhibitions, lantern painting, dance, music and plenty of delicious Chinese cuisine. A show stopping fireworks display will explode into the skies from 8pm.
Most of the Chinese New Year events will take place at Forgarty Park on Cairns Esplanade, within easy reach of our Trinity Beach family accommodation. We hope to see you there!
