There are a number of different cultures represented in the city of Seattle.
Seattle has made each culture feel at home and given them the space and ability to create an environment that reflects their culture and way of life.
Each year the Chinese celebrate their own New Years in late January and the celebration continues into the beginning of February. This is the year of the Dragon.
The open air night market in the heart of Chinatown is a mirror reflection of the way Chinese live daily in China. There are all kinds of stalls providing different authentic Chinese dishes, shopping, games, movies, entertainment, and gifts.
