 Bentonville Public Library will welcome in the Year of the Dog at a Chinese New Year Celebration on Saturday, February 17 at 1:00 PM in the Walmart Community Room. The celebration will feature a traditional Chinese Lion Dance and children’s craft and activities. This event is free and open to the community.

Members of Breath of Life TAO School of Martial Arts will perform the Lion Dance at Bentonville Public Library. Basic Lion Dance movements can be found in most Chinese martial arts. This was the inspiration for the members of the group to learn and share the Lion Dance. The colorful lion costume worn in the dance was brought to Northwest Arkansas from China. Fun art projects and activities incorporating our Thinking Money exhibit and Chinese traditions will follow the Lion Dance.
