One of Melbourne's largest Chinese community hubs is hosting an epic festival for Lunar New Year
Given that Box Hill is one of the largest and most vibrant centres of Melbourne's Chinese population, it's no surprise that Box Hill Central is putting on a huge array of celebrations to ring in the Year of the Pig.
Head to the centre on Saturday, February 2 for a non-stop 14-hour Chinese New Year Festival which will include lots of food, music and entertainment provided by the Whitehorse City Council. Expect a lion dance, a wide range of market stalls and so much more.
Festivities will run from January 31 to February 17 with the centre boasting a series of activities, including the installation of a 3D illuminated pig, a CNY photo booth, Chinese calligraphy classes and there will be the chance to win 1,500 different prizes.
