I think when February swings around, you can finally stop greeting people with ‘Happy new year’ when you encounter them for the first time in 2019, unless you’re greeting them ‘Happy Luna New Year!’ of course. But here are my top things to do in Ol’ Sydney Town for the month of Feb!
Watch the Super Bowl in Sydney- Mon 4 Feb
The Morrison Bar & Oyster Room, 225 George Street, Sydney
You’ll have to take an annual leave day to be a part of this one, but you can join ¾ of the United States and the couple of thousand Aussie Gridiron fans to watch Super Bowl 53 Live! But if you’re one of the faithful (or just wanting to get involved in one of the largest Spectacle of the year) head on down to the Morrison’s for an American breakfast and lunch while cheering on the Patriots and the Rams! Doors open 9am for breakfast (kick-off at 10.30am). FREE entry but booking is essential.

Luna New Year Twilight Parade- Sat 16 Feb
91 Archer St, Chatswood
For the very first time, Chatswood will play host to the Luna New Year Twilight Parade- drumming out from Chatswood Interchange, Lion-dancing their way through Chatswood Mall, before oinking down Victoria Avenue to Bertram Street. Line the path with your kids and welcome in the year of the Pig with sound and colour! Parade starts at 6pm and afterwards grab a bite at one of the many many Asian restaurants in the area. The cost to take part is FREE, unless you really want to ‘take part’, they’re still accepting registrations for community and friendship groups to be a part of the floats! Hey babe! Let’s get the Chinese Poem Reciting Group back together again for one last recital!?
