Chinese New Year is a 15-day celebration of the new moon from the lunar calendar. Every year the Asian Community Service Center puts on Chinese New Year celebrations in the DC area. 2016 is the Year of the Monkey and a free day of festivities will be held on February 6th in Falls Church, Virginia. The day will include live performances of Dragon and Lion dances, folk songs, and a sword dance. The parade begins at 2pm and make sure to come on an empty stomach as there will be plenty of tasty Asian cuisine as well.
