Celebrating the Year of the Dragon

Audrey Miranda | Assistant Director of Marketing January 31st, 2024

Lunar New Year is a celebration of the arrival of spring and the beginning of a new year on the lunisolar calendar. Each year corresponds with a zodiac sign. Enter the dragon. 2024's bold and powerful zodiac sign symbolizes great power and strength, and an auspicious future, and is considered luckiest of the signs.

The celebration of the Lunar New Year officially begins on Saturday, February 10. We start our celebration early with an installation of nearly 250 enormous lanterns over the ice rink to celebrate the Year of the Dragon. The beautiful lantern festival installation will stay up through Tuesday, Feb. 20.

We also host the HD Lion Dance Foundation, who will perform a colorful dragon dance at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10 on Level 1 near Sephora. In addition to the exciting dance performance, visitors will enjoy a high-energy drumming performance as a part of the celebration. According to ancient tradition, the Year of the Dragon will bring improvement, evolution and abundance, all traits celebrated at the popular shopping destination.

In addition to these activities, we've selected red and gold gifts that will bring all the positive energy and usher in happiness, great health, and prosperity in the year ahead.
