Fashion Show and Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas to Celebrate Year of the Dog With Opening Ceremony, Ribbon Cutting, Fan Dance & More
As the annual Spring Festival nears, two iconic Las Vegas shopping destinations, Fashion Show and Grand Canal Shoppes inside The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas, will celebrate the Year of the Dog in true fashion with several events in honor of the Lunar New Year.
Fashion Show will host the 7th Annual CNY in the Desert™ Opening Ceremony and ring in the Year of the Dog with a special ribbon cutting and dinner on Friday, February 16. To commemorate Chinese New Year, guests are invited to partake on a journey to China and experience cultural performances by the Tianjin Dance and Acrobatic Theater Company as they take on the runway. Guests will be able to enjoy a live authentic dragon dance and eye painting ceremony by Las Vegas Lohan School of Shaolin, followed by a ceremonial blessing of the department stores where team members will feed the dragon red envelopes to bring good luck for the year. Following the ceremony, guests also have the option to enjoy a special Lunar New Year family-style dinner catered by Kona Grill and cocktails sponsored by Remy Martin. Tickets are priced at $88 (excludes tax and gratuity), and will be available for purchase at Eventbrite.
Grand Canal Shoppes will help kick off the Lunar New Year festivities on February 16 with the signature fan dance above the waterfall at 4:00 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. During and after the fan dance, more than 250 envelopes will be distributed to guests. The envelopes will be filled with prizes – from gift cards to chocolate gold coins. Each red envelope will also be bundled with signature store incentives available at participating Grand Canal Shoppes stores and restaurants.
