TROY - Members of Troy University's Chinese Students and Scholars Association will celebrate Chinese New Year on the Troy Campus on January 27 in the Trojan Center Ballrooms.

The annual event, also called Spring Festival, is open to the public and features traditional performances and food. Tickets to the event are $15 ($10 for students), and may be purchased from the International Program Office located in the basement of Hawkins Hall, in the Trojan Center food court during lunch and at the doors, which open at 5 p.m.

"This is the most important festival for the Chinese people and has more than 4,000 years of history," said Ruifeng Wang, CSSA's president. "It is similar to Christmas in the West with families coming together to celebrate."

The slate of entertainment includes language programs, song and dance performances, piano, violin, Hulusi and other instrumental performances. Door prizes will also be awarded during the evening.
