Family celebrates Chinese New Year
The Collins family of Scripps Ranch will hold a Chinese New Year celebration at their business, Collins Family Jewelers, 8220-A Mira Mesa Blvd., on Saturday, Feb. 2, starting at 9 a.m. The public is invited.
While Chinese New Year is officially Tuesday, Feb. 5 this year, the local Feb. 2 celebration is scheduled on a Saturday so that more people may attend the event. The Collins family provides this celebration annually for the community. This is the Year of the Pig, the Chinese zodiac sign for both Bill and Cynthia Collins, owners of Collins Family Jewelers.
The event will include traditional lion dancing, martial arts demonstrations and firecrackers. A troupe of high school-aged performers will be inside the lion costumes and others will perform on drums.
