Various programs and festivities are already set for the upcoming celebration of the Chinese New Year here, an officer of a local Chinese group announced yesterday. Jasper Chang, the public relations officer of the Davao City Chinatown Development Council, in a press conference here on Wednesday said this year’s celebration will be highlighted by the turnover of a prosperity art worth some P2 million to the city government on Friday, February 8.

According to Chang, awards will also be given to groups and individuals who extended help to residents who were affected by the recent flooding in the city.

“This year’s New Year celebration is a joint project of the council, the city government, and the Duaw Davao Foundation,” he pointed out.

It was learned that a total of six Chinese schools in this city will participate in the celebration that will be held at the Davao Central High School here.

The traditional dragon and lion dance will also be witnessed by local residents of the city who would want to participate in the celebration.

Chang said his group will offer food such as misua (noodles), egg, and “tikoy” to all residents who would join the celebration.

The countdown to greet the Year of the Water Snake will start in the evening of February 9, where invited celebrities are set to entertain merrymakers.
