Tuesday 10th of February 2015
After the success of the Year of the Horse, Liverpool Chinatown is heading towards the Year of the Goat celebrations that commence on Sunday 22nd February 2015.
The 2015 Kuei Szu year welcomes the eighth animal sign of the Chinese Zodiac – the elegant, artistic and good natured Goat.
The kind hearted Goat tends to be polite, sensitive and compassionate with good manners and a charming nature which means they are often popular with many admirers and friends. With a tender, polite but sometimes insecure personality, Goats can often shy from confrontation and prefer to absorb themselves with art and nature.
People born in the Year of the Goat are good natured, genuine, forgiving and understanding and place a strong focus on family. Goats are often cared for deeply by those around them and as such, will never go without in life.
To celebrate the Year of the Goat, Culture Liverpool, Liverpool Chinese Community groups and other organisations have arranged a series of arts and cultural events with the main celebratory events taking place on Sunday 22nd February 2015.
As always, the street festivities will be fun-filled, with plenty of activities for children and adults to enjoy, including:
11.00am – Chinese New Year Market Starts (Great George Street)
12.00 noon – Dragon & Lion Street Parades (Chinatown)
1.00pm – Spectacular Firecracker Display (Great George Square)
