The streets, laneways and squares of Chinatown, Haymarket and Darling Harbour were transformed for multi-cultural performances, markets and carnival rides for Lunar Lanes on Saturday 25 January.

The event marked the start of the Lunar New Year and 16 days of Sydney Lunar Festival celebrations from the City of Sydney.

2020 is the Year of the Rat, the first sign of the 12-year lunar zodiac cycle. Considered a year of new beginnings, it also marks the start of a new decade.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the auspicious Year of the Metal Rat was a wonderful opportunity for all communities to come together and celebrate.

“As the biggest celebration of the Lunar New Year outside Asia, we have drawn on Sydney’s diverse cultures – including Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian and Malaysian – to create this exciting festival,” the Lord Mayor said.

“Over the years we’ve seen the festival grow from a small community event in Chinatown to one of the largest lunar celebrations in the world. It was wonderful to celebrate with Lunar Lanes where it all began 24 years ago.”

      唐人街、禧市地区(Haymarket)和达令港(Darling Harbour)的中心区域以及周边大街小巷都为农历巷道街头派对(Lunar Lanes)交织融合,免费为大众奉献绝伦表演、年味庙会、玲珑游乐等元素,缔造普天同庆的盛况

      这场街头派对作为悉尼市政府农历节庆典的序幕,正式启动本市长达16天的节庆盛事

      2020年是鼠年,12生肖之首。金鼠贺岁,万象更新,同时也是又一崭新十年段的起始

      悉尼市市长Clover Moore认为,吉祥喜庆的金鼠年之际,大家都应齐聚一堂共庆同欢

      她说:该庆典是亚洲以外规模最为庞大的贺岁盛会,吸引了中、韩、越、泰、印尼、马来西亚等本土多民族的参与,为人们呈现了这场精彩荟萃。

      该庆典起初是规模不大的唐人街社区活动,如今名满天下,已经发展成为了全球规模最大的农历盛世之一。因此,昨晚能看到农历巷道街头派对活动把整场节事精彩带回到庆典24年前的原生地 —— 唐人街,与民众们一起贺岁迎新让我感到欣喜万分
