“CHINESE NEW YEAR IN LE MARAIS”


CHINESE NEW YEAR IN LE MARAIS


From January 27 to February 10, celebrate the Chinese New Year in the 3rd arrondissement!

For the last 12 years, the Town Hall of the 3rd arrondissement has hosted its local Chinese community, the oldest in Paris, and organized a New Year celebration as it is the most important traditional Chinese holiday.

This year, we leave behind the year of the water snake and enter the year of the wooden horse. The  dragon parade, lion dances and many activities are taking place in the 3rd arrondissement to celebrate this event, giving us the opportunity to discover different aspects of a rich and fascinating culture.

Exhibitions, concerts, conferences, debates, workshops and more will be going on for an entire week. The Mayor of the 3rd and the Festival Committee invite you to come share moments of discovery, entertainment, learning, and fun, all colored by the enchanting hues of China.

Dragon Dance followed by the traditional wishes to the Chinese community.

• Friday, February 7 at 14:30

Conference on "Chinese well-being in everyday life" presented by Ms. Hong CHEN, professor of Taiji and Qigong, and Ms. Yan LIU, President of the Franco-Chinese Culture and Sports Association, followed by a workshop and discussion.

All events take place at the Town Hall 3rd

In partnership with the associations of Pierre Ducerf, the Chinese residents in France, and France China Culture.

During the opening parade, last Sunday, we had the great chance to meet Magdalena Martin, a sweedish professionnal photographer who offered us gently to publish her amazing pictures of the parade, so here they are!

After many years of travelling to Paris, her favorite city in the world, she decided to finally move there in 2012 and that´s how she ended up to live in Montmartre area! Magdalena sells her pictures as Photo Art to both private customers and companies around the world. She also works as a freelance photographer for magazines and sometimes works behind the scene at Le Moulin Rouge as a backstage photographer. Her passion is to catch Paris with a vintage and timeless atmosphere. Enjoy more examples on her web page, and you can buy online your favorite Paris pictures. www.mmphotoart.com
