SkyCity Auckland is going all out with its Chinese New Year celebrations this year, increasing the spectacle with an all-new festival along Federal Street. The new street festival will celebrate the Chinese community and recognise Auckland's rich diversity with live entertainment and a Chinese village popping up under the Sky Tower.

The free event will see the entire street closed off to make way for lion dancers, Chinese acrobatics, pop-up Chinese market stalls, face painters and more. For those looking for traditional Chinese food the Auckland Night Noodle Markets will pop up under the Sky Tower while Chinese restaurant, Huami, will be offering special set menus throughout the celebrations.

On Chinese New Year's Day, Tuesday 5 February, the God of Fortune will perform a Sky Jump from the Sky Tower followed by the traditional 'painting of the eye' ceremony to bring good luck and lighting of firecrackers to ward off evil spirits.
