The Venetian Resort Las Vegas is celebrating Chinese New Year and “The Year of the Pig” with an inspiring and traditional eye ceremony and lion dance.
The auspicious dance begins at The Venetian’s porte cochere and winds its way through The Venetian lobby and casino, stopping in the waterfall atrium before continuing through The Palazzo casino and lobby, and ending at The Palazzo porte cochere. This exciting and joyful event features firecrackers, and a parade of dancers and drummers in authentic costumes.
To accompany the ceremony and dance, guests can enjoy stunning decorations highlighting the “Year of the Pig” that can be found throughout the resort.
To commemorate the “Year of the Pig,” The Venetian Resort’s floral and horticulture team worked with a team of artisans and consulted a feng shui master to create an installation that features a colossal golden pig sculpture.
The “Year of the Pig” art installation:
- A 3,000 pound golden pig that stands 16 feet tall
- Nine additional pigs are positioned throughout the resort.
- According to custom, it is suggested that guests walk clockwise around the feature display three times to bring blessings of heaven, earth, and mankind upon them.
