Covid is no barrier to Lunar New Year fun

The people of Sydney won't let a pandemic prevent them from having a good time.

The City of Sydney is hosting Lunar Lanes - a one-off Sydney Lunar Festival event - in Haymarket this Saturday featuring roving performers, market stalls, DJs, lion dancers and a night-time concert.

The event will run from 5pm-10pm.

Lunar Lanes offers the first chance to see this year’s new crouching tiger lanterns, standing guard in Dixon Street Mall as part of the city's lunar lanterns display of the 12 zodiac animals.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the event is a terrific opportunity for Sydneysiders and visitors alike to come back and enjoy the city and Chinatown, the traditional heart of Sydney’s Lunar Festival celebrations.

“We launched this wonderful community celebration in 2020 and we’re looking forward to once again seeing people experiencing the cultural activities, entertainment and feasts on offer,” Moore said.

Lunar Lanes is a wonderful way for people to enjoy the spirit of our 2022 Year of the Tiger celebrations.

“Creating outdoor opportunities for visitors and residents is an essential part of what we’re doing to support our local businesses through these challenging times, and we are doing everything we can to make this a safe event for everyone.

"Covid-19 safety plans will be in place for Lunar Lanes and all NSW Health regulations will be followed.

“People are keen to get out of the house and enjoy what Sydney has to offer, safely. By closing off streets, we’re creating extra space that will give people a safe way to support local businesses and re-engage with their community.

“Given the ongoing spread of the Omicron variant, people still need to exercise caution, follow health guidance and get vaccinated. When it comes to enjoying events like Lunar Lanes and our Summer Streets activations, we urge people attending to be vaccinated, wear a mask and practise safe distancing.”

Entertainment and activities at Lunar Lanes will include cultural performances by Sydney’s Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian, Taiwanese and Japanese communities on the main stage at Hay Street, lion dancers performing to the beat of accompanying drummers and 10-metre illuminated LED lion dance performance.

Street stalls will be set up for a carnival atmosphere and food trucks will be on site as well as local restaurants.

  1. Few Months ago, I felt so depressed, got frustrated dealing with bad credits, but reaching out to HACK VANISH via Phone: +1 (747) 293-8514 and Email: HACK VANISH (@) GMAIL. COM gave my life a new meaning, after I found him credible through positive reviews read on some credit blogs, in a twinkle of an eye, this great hacker restored my credit score from 509 to 784 across all 3 major credit bureaus, evictions and repossession cleared, my LexisNexis and Chex system fixed respectively, some days later, I received an E-mail confirming the approval of my home loan, it was quite amazing because I never thought it was possible. Today, I can confidently say 2021 was an exceptional year for my husband and I as we now own a new home and a brand-new SUV courtesy HACK VANISH, I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a genuine Hacker.
