Celebrate the Year of the Rabbit and ring in the Chinese New Year at the Greenwich Library with performances from the Huaxia Edison Dance Troupe , as well as martial arts and magic exhibitions.

Chinese New Year is the most important of all traditional Chinese holidays and is known as the spring festival. The New Year begins on Feb. 3 and celebrates the year of the rabbit, the fourth of 12 Chinese zodiac animals.

The New Jersey-based troupe is made up of working mothers who learn and practice Chinese folk dances Sundays while their children attend the Huaxia Chinese School.

The celebration will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 13, at the Cole Auditorium of the Greenwich Library. The program is free and appropriate for all ages. No registration is required. For more information, call Yang Wang at 203-622-7924.
