 Bentonville Public Library will welcome in the Year of the Pig with a Chinese New Year Celebration. The celebration will feature a traditional Chinese Lion Dance beginning at 10:30 a.m. in the Walmart Community Room. Children’s art and Chinese traditional activities will follow.

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.

This family event is free and open to the community. For more information, contact the Youth Services Department at (479) 271-6713.
