Dancers from the Yau Kung Mon Kung Fu School of U.S.A. from Los Angeles and San Francisco paraded through both properties, blessing the baccarat salons in the casinos. The colorful event featured a parade of dancers and drummers dressed in authentic costumes who made their way through The Waterfall Atrium of The Palazzo to bring good luck throughout 2014. Guests gathered to watch the dragon and lion dance and take photos of the art installation featuring hand-sculpted and hand-painted horses.

To commemorate the Year of the Horse, the resort’s floral and horticulture department worked with a team of artisans, and consulted with a Feng Shui master, to produce the massive “Year of the Horse” art installation.
