The 2014 Chinese New Year celebrations will kick-off at Belmore Park, which will be transformed into a bustling night market teeming with food stalls and entertaining live performances. The revelries are expected to attract more than 600,000 international and domestic visitors, featuring over 80 events between 24 January and 9 February 2014. Dragon boat races, art exhibitions and lunar feasts will also be a part of the programme. The annual Twilight Parade will take place on 2 February, snaking its way through the city from Sydney Town Hall to Chinatown, featuring more than 3,000 performers. Sydney has revealed the largest-ever programme of events, celebrating the Year of the Horse, as part of the city’s 2014 Chinese New Year festivities. “Festival favourites like the Twilight Parade, Belmore Park markets and Dragon Ball are back, but we’ve also got plenty of new events from film festivals and world premiere dance performances to brand new food highlights,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.
