Hawaii is a true melting pot of cultures, which affords one the chance to observe and celebrate the holidays and events of many nations. One of the biggest in Hawaii is the Chinese New Year, and Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s Information, Tickets & Travel (ITT) is offering three tours to give patrons the opportunity to join in on the fun.

The Jan. 24 tour, which costs $37, will focus on the kickoff of the official Chinese New Year ceremony. Lion dances, firecrackers and more will highlight the evening.

The festivities continue the next day with a morning and afternoon tour. The morning Chinatown tour costs $33 and is similar to ITT’s food and historic tour, with the added features of the New Year celebration. The afternoon tour costs $37 and offers the chance to see the parade followed by a Chinese-style dinner.

All tours include round-trip transportation from the Hickam ITT office. For more information, interested patrons can visit their nearest ITT office or call 448-2295. Prices shown are adult prices. Call for child prices.
