It is Chinese New Year. Last Saturday I attended the Chinese New Year celebration of the one of Boston’s oldest Chinese Associations. The Gee How Oak Tin Association celebration event was well attended by the members and Massachusetts politicians. The main celebration was held at Empire Garden, while the over flow celebration was held at China Pearl.
Some politicians that made an appearance were Congressman Michael Capuano, Governor Deval Patrick, Mayor Thomas Menino, State Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz, Boston City Councillors John Connolloy, Ayana Pressley, and Bill Linehan. Boston City Councillor Bill Linehan sang his yearly traditional song of Sweet Caroline and Delliah.
I was honored to be a guest at this event. Here are some event pictures
