January 21, 22 | 1-5pm | In-Person | 12 Fulton Street | Free
Celebrate the Lunar New Year all weekend long with the Seaport Museum’s maritime-inspired spin on a Chinese Lion Chain craft. Come create your own, unique lion chain decoration using paper links inspired by the colorful signal flags that sailors use to communicate. This fun-filled activity is in partnership with the New York Chinese Cultural Center. Weather permitting, this activity may be moved to the climate-controlled crew quarters on tall ship Wavertree for additional maritime spirit.
