The workshop is suggested for students in grades K-6. Call Amanda Brown, Education Director, at 605-578-1657 for reservations or more information. Reservations are required.       

Children are invited to hear how Chinese New Year is celebrated and why this holiday is so important in Chinese culture and to Deadwood history. They will learn what the Year of the Pig means for 2019 and the traditions that make Chinese New Year so unique. Students will also make their own Chinese lantern as well as a dragon puppet. The workshop will also include a Chinese style lunch and a red envelope ceremony.
