and The Palazzo rang in the Year of the Dragon earlier today with a ceremonial Dragon Dance beginning in front of The Venetian where Dr. Miriam and Mr. Sheldon G.

The colorful spectacle paraded through the casino before arriving in The Waterfall & Atrium Gardens of The Palazzo for the 128-foot dragon’s inaugural fire breathing. Surrounded by overhead lanterns, fresh bamboo and the feng shui inspired gardens, guests were seen feeding traditional red envelopes to the lion dancers and circling the 8,000-pound dragon three times to bring good fortune in 2012.

Spanning the entire atrium, the signature dragon attraction took more than a year to create and is the brainchild of more than 100 artisans from across the globe. Taking 10 days to install on site, the dragon and surrounding décor is designed by the ancient Chinese art of feng shui.
