The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas Celebrate Chinese New Year 2010

February 8, 2010 by  

The Venetian and The Palazzo will celebrate the Year of the Tiger with an authentic dragon and lion dance complete with eye ceremony and firecrackers. The colorful spectacle will involve performers dressed in elaborate costumes playing traditional music. The parade of dancers and musicians will begin at The Venetian’s lavish Porte Cochere and make its way through the casino floor enter The Shoppes at The Palazzo ending in the extravagant Palazzo Lobby. The parade is open to the public.

Festive decorations in the customary color scheme of red and gold and traditional tangerine trees will help ring in the New Year at The Venetian and The Palazzo. Both properties will feature unique and custom décor and some of the highlights include:

  • A 16.5-foot long custom-designed Tiger will be situated at the water feature facing The Palazzo casino floor to welcome visitors
  • Six-foot custom-made red, orange and yellow lanterns that will be hung in The Palazzo lobby and atrium to signify the lives of our guests will always be bright and full of lights.
  • Over-sized bamboo towers with fresh orchids, lanterns and tangerine trees celebrating the New Year

Chinese New Year is celebrated on the first day, of the first moon, of the lunar calendar. The dragon and lion dance symbolizes good luck and prosperity for the year to come and is an important ritual of the Chinese culture. The Chinese consider dragons to be friendly and helpful creatures associated with strength, good fortune, wisdom and longevity. Lions are traditionally seen as guardians and are used to exorcise evil spirits and summon luck and fortune.
