Lunar New Year Celebration at the Great Park Neighborhoods – Novel Park


Kicking off the new decade, the Great Park Neighborhoods HOA threw an amazing celebration of the Chinese Lunar New Year!

Lunar New Year is a festival typically celebrated in China and other Asian countries (Vietnam, Tibet, Korea) that begins with the first new moon of the lunar calendar and ends on the first full moon of the lunar calendar.

It took place in the newest neighborhood, Novel Park.

It was a beautiful day for all the wonderful activities that was available for families to experience – including Lion Dances every hour, Storytelling, Chinese Concert.







Families could also have free Boba, take selfies at the photo booth, kids could create art & get balloon animals!

There was also storytelling for the kiddos that helped explain what Lunar New Year is all about. 2020 is the year of the Rat!

It was great to see this celebration get better and better year after year. What I appreciate the most is that the HOA understands the residents’ needs and gives us a better experience each time. What more could you ask for?






Because of the diverse cultures you will find in the Great Park Neighborhoods, this event was a great way to show our younger generations and older how a new year is celebrated in parts of the asian subcontinent. Future residents could also explore the new Novel Park that boasts a Zen Garden, Coffee Shop, and dog parks to throw in an urban feel in the suburb of Irvine. With Novel Park’s fresh mix of home styles, even walks around the block will take a surprising turn.

It’s truly a unique neighborhood, and if you’re interested in becoming a resident here, come meet me and I’ll show you around!
