8 February

Lunar New Year wrap up

It was so wonderful to see so many people come together in Eastwood to celebrate the best of Asian food and culture at the City of Ryde Lunar New Year celebration. 

Thank you to our staff and committee members, who dedicated their time to helping make this event such a success. 

I wish everyone good fortune and happiness for the year ahead and hope you will join us again next year.
