The Year of the Horse begins January 31, 2014! People born in the Year of the Horse are generally popular, smart, and strong. Learn more about this most colorful and joyous of all Chinese festivals during the two-week celebration at Lan Su.
The celebration kicks off on Friday, January 31 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 the Lee's Association Dragon & Lion Dance team, a visit from the Portland Police Mounted Patrol Unit, a martial arts demonstration and much more! Every guest visiting on January 31 will also receive a hong bao, or traditional lucky red envelope.
The celebration ends with three nights of Lantern Viewing and dragon processions (February 12-14).
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.
