According to professional feng shui master Paul Ng, people born during the Year of the Horse may see their authority increase in the coming year, but they shouldn’t expect to earn a lot of money or experience much excitement in their love lives. Those predictions are a mixed bag, but nevertheless, it’s time to ring in the Lunar New Year at the Oakland Museum of California’s (1000 Oak St., Oakland) thirteenth annual celebration this Sunday. The Year of the Horse festivities will be decidedly multicultural, featuring traditions from Korea, Vietnam, Japan, and Tibet. The day will begin with a traditional Chinese lion dance and will be followed by a K-pop dance, a Tibetan prayer flag-making workshop, Japanese folktales, a Vietnamese martial arts demonstration, and a bhangra dance performance. OMCA’s Blue Oak cafe will be serving an Asian-inspired menu, designed specially for the festivities.
