description

The Year of the Rat comes alive at SALT at Our Kakaʻako, with a free community celebration, featuring a traditional lion dance to ring in the Chinese New Year. The festivities also include a martial arts demonstration and more. Accompanied by rhythmic drums and percussion, the Chinese lion will visit shops, restaurants and businesses at SALT at Our Kakaʻako. It will be fed donations in red envelopes, known as lai see (lucky money), believed to bring prosperity to the giver throughout the year. Participating in this tradition can be fun for family members, both young and old, attending SALT’s Chinese New Year celebration.
