No Kidding – it's the Year of the Goat!

AFTER the success of the 'Year of the Horse', Liverpool's Chinatown is looking forward to the Year of the Goat celebrations that will take place on Sunday, 22 February 2015.

The streets of Liverpool's historic Chinatown and beyond will be filled with Chinese markets, street parades and fun filled activities for all the family to enjoy.

Cabinet member for Culture, Tourism and events, Council lor Wendy Simon said:- "Chinese New Year marks a huge celebration in the Chinese calendar and is enjoyed annually by many residents of the City. This event gets bigger and brighter year after year and I am sure there will be some surprises in store for the Year of the Goat. Last year we welcomed over 15,000 visitors to Chinese New Year and I hope we can encourage many more, young and old, to come into the City centre and take part in what is guaranteed to be another hugely successful event."

The 2015 Kuei Szu year welcomes the 8th animal sign of the Chinese Zodiac – the elegant, artistic and good natured Goat.

To celebrate the Year of the Goat, Culture Liverpool, Liverpool Chinese Community groups and other organisations have arranged a series of arts and cultural events with the main celebratory events taking place on Sunday 22 February 2015.

As always, the street festivities will be fun-filled, with plenty of activities for children and adults to enjoy, including Chinese New Year Market, Dragon & Lion Street Parades, children's fun fair, Traditional Chinese cultural performances and a spectacular firecracker display.

There is also an opportunity to make Chinese lanterns and listen to Chinese storytelling at libraries as part of:- 'The City of Readers Campaign' during half term; a full list of events and activities can be found online.

The kind hearted Goat tends to be polite, sensitive and compassionate with good manners and a charming nature which means they are often popular with many admirers and friends. With a tender, polite, but sometimes insecure personality, Goats can often shy from confrontation and prefer to absorb themselves with art and nature. 

People born in the Year of the Goat are good natured, genuine, forgiving and understanding and place a strong focus on family. Goats are often cared for deeply by those around them and as such, will never go without in life.
