Activities this year include:

  • Food stands with Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese treats
  • Live musical performances featuring traditional Chinese dancers
  • The Lucky Wishing Wall
  • Mickey, Minnie, and friends meeting guests in traditional Chinese clothing
  • Mulan and Mushu parade

And for the grand finale! Each evening, World of Color transforms into a new show called Hurry Home. The show tells the story of a little lantern’s journey to find its family in time for the new year. Hurry Home uses a musical score by composer Tan Dun, originally created for the opening ceremony of the Shanghai park.
