The city will welcome the Year of the Dog with the launching of the Baguio Spring Festival or Chinese Lunar New Year on Feb. 5, 8 a.m. at the City Hall grounds.

The city’s celebration will run until Feb. 17 with various traditional activities spearheaded by the city government led by Mayor Mauricio Domogan and the Baguio Filipino-Chinese Community. 

Domogan and Rep. Mark Go will deliver messages during the launching, which will feature the Lion Dance. 

Spring Festival Executive committee chair Peter Ng will lead the opening program while adviser Kane Chanbonpin will present the committee members.

Lawyer Cristeta Leung will talk on the significance of the Year of the Dog.

The calendar of activities will be unveiled to be followed by a cultural dance presentation to be rendered by the Baguio Patriotic High School Chinese faculty and a trivia to be facilitated by Pepito Avena, head secretariat of the committee.

The Spring Festival is considered the grandest and the most important annual event for the Chinese. The celebration is also one of their most colorful events.

This year is the Year of the Earth Dog according to the Chinese zodiac. 2018 is the 4,715th year in the Chinese calendar.

The highlights of the celebration include a media fellowship and briefing on Feb. 7, 6:30 p.m. at the Hotel Supreme, barangay gift-sharing on Feb. 13 at Gibraltar, to be capped by the grand colorful parade on Feb. 17, 2:30 p.m. at Session Road with program at Melvin Jones, and the dinner and awards night program at 7 p.m. at Hotel Supreme.

The Chinese New Year is a movable celebration because it is based on the lunar calendar.

People born in 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018 fall on the Year of the Dog.
