Weekly Freebie: Chinese Week at the Chinese Cultural Center in Phoenix
Each week, Jackalope Ranch brings you a free event, workshop, or you-name-it happening in Phoenix. Because sometimes the best things in life really are free. This week's freebie: Chinese Week.
Chinese New Year is this Sunday, February 10, and to ring in the Year of the Snake, the 23rd Annual Phoenix Chinese Week will be delivering a weekend-long festival of culture, cuisine and more.
