It’s official: 2019’s Chinese Zodiac animal is the cutest one ever, making it all the more fun to celebrate the occasion. And what better way to honor the start of the Year of the Pig and the Lunar New Year Celebration than at the Queens Botanical Garden on Feb. 9? This free event will feature an array of festivities such as arts and crafts, live performances, activities for the entire family, a “lucky” plant sale (Lunar New Year Plant Sale sponsored by COTS Travel), and much more. The celebration runs from 12 to 4pm. All ages welcome. Event parking is $10.
