The Lunar New year starts on 1st February of 2022 and ends on 21st January 2023. This year is the year of the water tiger, one of the most significatn symbols of the chinese horoscope.
The water element means it will lower its intensity and make it more suptile as the tiger is viewed as an agressive and wild animal. This means that the current year will be stable but dynamic and with a lot of changes.
The chinese light festival wil be held at the Sava promenada in Belgrade and in the Liman Park in Novi Sad between 31st January – 13 February.
This spectacle has been designed by a group of artists from the Sichuan province. The founder of the festival is the prominent serbian artist Slobodan Trkulja who has announced numerous novelties bringing more joy and lights this year.
The Chinese horoscope has 12 signs. The first sign is the Rat, whose main perk is ingenuity. Other signs are Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Pig, Dog, Ox, Tiger and Rabbit.
The main attractions of the festival are located near Gallery Belgrade at the entrance 5: interative foot step panels with audio and light effects. You can even dance on them and produce music and a light show.
In Novi Sad, the Liman park will be decorated with two chinese dragons and numerous members of the animal kingdom like magic deers, fish etc.
Happy new lunar year!
新年快乐 – Xīnnián kuàilè !
