Help us celebrate the Chinese, Year of the Rat. These are public lantern-making workshops leading to the Lantern Parade on 29 February. All materials will be provided and this event is suitable for all ages.
The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.
