Celebrate Chinese New Year at Brightwater Commons

Written by

You can make resolutions and party all over again with Brightwater Commons, a Fountainhead Retail Asset, and their Chinese New Year event scheduled for Saturday 2 February 2012 from 11am to 5pm. The headline act for the day is the internationally renowned China National Acrobatics Troupe who incorporate music, dance, opera and Kung fu into their acrobatic programmes.

“The year of the Water Snake only comes around once in 60 years! It’s exciting for us to host this event and judging by the outstanding performances we saw last year, it’s going to be a celebration worth attending.

Gauteng citizens are great lovers of this international event, and we are going to give them what they are looking for with traditional acts, food, stalls, and various exhibitions”, says Francois du Buisson, marketing manager at Brightwater Commons.

From the authentic and symbolic opening ceremony, to the cultural variety show and, in a twist of Africa-meets-China, there will also be traditional African acts on stage.

“This event is going to be a melting pot of cultural ingredients.  I think it is important for members of different cultures to learn about one another, plus it’s just fun!” comments Du Buisson.

The China National Acrobatic Troupe, established over 50 years ago with performances in more than 80 countries and regions, will round off the entertainment for the day with a gravity-defying display and daredevil acts. Visitors can make themselves comfortable on the grassy commons to enjoy the display on the stage and try the Chinese delicacies, tantalising their taste buds with the variety of food stalls present.

Don’t miss out on this cultural extravaganza in Jozi. For more information contact The Brightwater Commons on 011 789 5052 or visit www.brightwatercommons.co.za and follow them on Facebook.
