We are still super new to our area here in southern Oregon, and are still discovering new places, new events all the time. Last week I found out about the Jacksonville Chinese New years festival. How exciting, since we literally just discussed this with MBTP 6-8.
After being home for nearly a week sick, I could not wait to go. Unfortunately I overlooked the time for the actual parade and we got there only to see the end of the parade, we literally walked up the street with the last people walking down. What a disappointment. After a few minutes discussing our options we decided to still hang out a bit anyways and discover the town and maybe a few other events that were supposed to be going on throughout the day. Luckily we still found some fun and the girls still got to experience a little bit of Chinese new year fun ! They played some Chinese children’s games, made some crafts, explored Chinese zodiac signs and lots more ! It was a fun day !
