The Year of the Ram begins January 31, 2015! People born in the Year of the Ram are generally sincere, persistent, and quick. Learn more about this most colorful and joyous of all Chinese festivals during the two-week celebration at Lan Su.
Tickets will be on available to members beginning December 1 and to the general public December 8.
The celebration kicks off on Thursday, February 19 with "Rolling in the Wealth," a traditional good fortune and prosperity activity of rolling oranges and gold coins through Lan Su's front door. "Rolling in the Wealth" is followed by a lion dance performance, and much more! Every guest visiting on February 19 will also receive a hong bao, or traditional lucky red envelope.
The celebration ends with three nights of Lantern Viewing and dragon processions (March 2-5).
Please note: For the safety of visitors, volunteers, and staff, entry may be limited at peak times of visitation to meet fire code regulations. Expect lines at times on opening day and weekend days. Plan for the most auspicious visit by arriving early! "Rolling in the Wealth" orange and coin rolling is limited to the first 100 visitors.
