QVM’s Dragon Arrives

Chinese New Year celebrations kick off from Thursday 19th February and QVM’s very own 15 metre long dragon has taken up residence on Queen St.

A lantern display has been installed in the Food Court and there will be free lion and dragon performances roaming through the market for approximately 20 minutes each on Thursday 19th February from 11:00am, Saturday 21st from 1:00pm, and Wednesday 25th for the Night Market from 7:00pm.

QVM celebrations will be supported by media advertising including Chinese media outlets, mainstream radio (Fox FM, Kiss FM, and 3AW), newspapers (Herald-Sun and Australian Chinese News) and various tourism publications and websites.

Yes - Mainstream media refers to Chinese New Year but we take your point. We understand that countries including China, Japan, Korea and Vietnam celebrate Lunar New Year at the same time with a number of other Asian countries using different dates for their celebrations. At QVM we probably should use the term "Lunar" - Ed.
