The Chinese Student and Scholar Association's celebration of Chinese New Year that started in 2006 on the Homewood campus quickly outgrew its venue and headed in 2007 to the Meyerhoff, where it drew some 2,000 attendees from 20 universities and institutes in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, West Virginia and Washington, D.C. This year, the event moves to the Lyric Opera House, where the Year of the Rat will be welcomed by the Beijing Opera monkey show, a Kung Fu spectacular, the Sichuan Acrobat rolling lamp show, singers, dancers and an audience that will include Chinese Ambassador Wenzhong Zhou and Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon. Tickets bought on the Homewood and East Baltimore campuses are 40 percent off. See Special Events.
