The Taste of China Festival, which celebrates the Lunar New Year, takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Tucson Chinese Cultural Center, 1288 W. River Road.

This is an inexpensive event you can take the whole family to.

There will be Chinese arts and crafts, games for kids music and dance performances and food available for purchase.

It's a great way to learn about another culture without breaking the bank. Admission is only $2. Kids 12 and under get in free.
