Lunar New Year Festival, Parramatta

To celebrate the Lunar New Year, last Friday Centenary Square in Parramatta was transformed into a busy, bustling square full of people, food and entertainment.

Recognising the year of the monkey, there was an appearance by Curious George who was very popular with the kids.

In an area called 'Lunar Land' there was plenty of free entertainment for the little ones. Gabby had fun decorating a Curious George mask and painting a paper lantern.

For the foodies there were several food stalls including the popular Lux Bite pop up stall which sold out in an hour. The lines were long, so I stuck to one stall selling Korean food. I ordered a Teriyaki chicken skewer and Korean dumplings which were filled with pork, vegetables and noodles. To drink I had a sugar cane and lime juice icy drink which was perfecting given the balmy weather.

Overall it was an enjoyable night.
