"This is one of the biggest events in the Tri-Valley," said Amy Liu. "It celebrates the Chinese New Year and the diverse cultural tradition."
The first part of the event is a potluck and Chinese cooking competition. Families are invited to bring dishes from 10 regions, which are vastly different.
The council also organizes a Chinese school that meets Sunday mornings at Amador. Currently, about 1,000 students are enrolled in about 50 classes. Students will represent the school at the celebration event. Around 2:30 p.m. they will showcase all they've learned with performances of dancing, singing, instruments, tai chi and martial arts. There will also be games for children and booths from community organizations.
The highlight of the event is the gala night. Several famous performers from all over the Bay Area will put on a show. Mayors from the four Tri-Valley cities typically attend the festivities. The gala night starts at 7 p.m.
