Special program on the weekend of 18 and 19 January makes Alameda the center of the party that greets the beginning of the Chinese New year.
The year 2019 celebrated the Year of the Pig and the end of the twelve signs that make the Chinese horoscope. This year, the podium is for the Rat, which marks a new twelve-year cycle, as it is the first sign of the lunar calendar and represents agility, intelligence and wealth accumulation.
“We want the entire local community, whether Chinese, Portuguese or foreign, to be present and to participate in the various activities and make the celebrations of the Chinese New Year 2020 unforgettable.” It was with this inclusion in mind that the organization decided to schedule the festivities for the weekend.
On Saturday, the 18th, the traditional Chinese New Year parade organized by the Association of Luso-Chinese Traders and Industrialists and the Chinese Embassy will start at 11 am. The meeting point takes place next to the Church of Anjos and from there hundreds of participants will go to Alameda D. Afonso Henriques.
There will be martial arts, dragon dances, theater, and even ballet. The party, however, does not stop here. On the two days, between 10 am and 5 pm, Alameda hosts a Chinese fair with decorations, handicrafts, and gastronomy! The admission to the fair is free.
Celebrate the Chinese Culture in Museu do Oriente by learning how to make traditional Chinese lamps or learning Chinese paper cutting! The entrance is free, however, the activities have their own price.

Very helpful. Work with his heart. Mark is a very nice advisor.Investor from Morocco
Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.Investor from the USA
