Singing, dancing, food and crafts highlight the Cabarrus Chinese American Association’s (CCAA) Annual Chinese New Year Celebration on Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m. at 1355 Cox Mill Road near Concord Mills Mall.
The CCAA’s New Year Celebration is a family oriented event that attracts hundreds of people from around the region. From 3 to 5 p.m., enjoy a cultural showcase presented by:

From 5 to 7 p.m., enjoy a family-oriented party in the cafeteria.
Also known as the Spring Festival, the Chinese New Year is one of the most important holidays on the Chinese calendar. 2014 marks the year of the horse.
Tickets are available online at http://www.chinesecommunitynet.com/CNY2013/cabarrus_NC.aspx for $8 ($10 at the door). Proceeds from the event go to the CCAA’s Chinese Language and Art School.
Scientists at the North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC) in Kannapolis formed the Cabarrus Chinese American Association in 2011 with the goals of introducing Chinese culture to the area and opening a Chinese Language and Art School. The school opened in September 2011 at Cox Mill Elementary School in Concord and is held on Saturdays. Scientists serving on the CCAA committee include David H. Murdock Research Institute Manager of Genomic Sciences Xinguo “Mike” Wang, PhD, and NC Central University Assistant Professor TinChung Leung, PhD.
