Celebrations for the 2018 Chinese New Year have been in full swing at Wrest Point, with the property themed for the Year of The Dog and several events, functions and lion dances taking place.
Beautiful Chinese lanterns adorned Wrest Point, generously provided by Master Wang, President of the Tasmanian Chinese Buddhist Academy of Tasmania.
In the first Chinese New Year since the opening of Kwan Ho, the restaurant was a popular choice for diners and also catered for the Chinese Community Association of Tasmania’s Celebration Dinner in collaboration with Wrest Point staff. Master Wang hosted a Chinese New Year Celebration Banquet in the Tasman Room for 250 guests. The Tasman Room and Exhibition Foyer were elaborately decorated and the dinner featured a program of cultural performances.
The Chinese Community Festival held on Parliament Lawns was also proudly sponsored by Wrest Point.
The Dog is the eleventh in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign. The Years of the Dog include 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018. Dogs are loyal and honest, amiable and kind, cautious and prudent. Due to having a strong sense of loyalty and sincerity, Dogs will do everything for the person who they think is most important. Some famous Dogs include Mother Teresa, Elvis Presley, Donald Trump, Madonna, Michael Jackson and Justin Bieber.
