Lion Dancers Welcome Chinese New Year at Kapolei Shopping Center, Feb. 3
February 3, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
A troupe of lion dancers and drummers from Wah Ngai Lion Dance Association will help ward off evil spirits and summon joy and good fortune for the new year when they visit Kapolei Shopping Center on Saturday, Feb. 3 from 10am till noon. A Kung Fu demonstration ‘kicks off’ the event at 10am in the area fronting Napa Auto Parts, and then the troupe will make their way through the center, blessing stores and restaurants.
The public is invited to join this free celebration and help welcome the Chinese Year of the Dog. Red envelopes, or lai see, to feed the lions will be passed out while supplies last. The Chinese regard red as a symbol of energy, happiness and good luck, and receiving a red envelope is believed to bring peace and good fortune to the recipient.
