The Year of the Snake was ushered in Saturday at the sixth annual Chinese New Year Festival at Luther Jackson Middle School with a dragon parade, lion dance, musical performances, food, children’s crafts, vendors, and greetings from politicians. The event was organized by the Asian Community Service Center, based in Vienna. People born in the Year of the Snake are considered intelligent, wise, intuitive, private, and reticent.
