UNK to Share Chinese Culture with Community Through Chinese Spring Festival Event

Posted: Updated:

Some UNK students will be sharing a bit of Chinese culture with the community with its upcoming Chinese Spring Festival.

Senior industrial distribution major Peijie Li says the festival is meant to share some Chinese culture with the UNK and Kearney communities.

"We have a good amount of Chinese students on campus," Li said. "People from Kearney don't always get to experience the Chinese culture. We're planning the festival to let a small town in America experience that."

Students will prepare authentic Chinese food and there will be traditional Chinese music and dances, as well as a comedy act to entertain participants. Other games and activities will be a part of the festival as well.

Li says the festival may also be helpful for the students from China who may be feeling homesick during this special time of year.

The Chinese Spring Festival, also known as the Chinese New Year celebration, is celebrated for 15 days starting from Chinese New Year's Eve.

This free event begins at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1 at the Nebraska Student Union Ponderosa Room.
