On Friday, Feb. 8, the Baldwin Park Adult and Community Education (BPACE) Older Adult Program, in association with the City of Baldwin Park and the Allan Company, will welcome community members to celebrate the Year of the Pig with an array of performances, including fan dances and a traditional lion dance. The event will take place from 9-11 a.m. in the Performing Arts Center at 4640 N. Maine Ave. in Baldwin Park. Performances are by BPACE students, instructors and community groups. Between dance numbers, performers will give presentations on the holiday’s cultural significance to attendees, including Senator Susan Rubio.
