Celebrate Lunar New Year and the Year of the Pig at Downtown Summerlin on Tuesday, February 5 at 6 p.m. You can enjoy watching the festive Dragon and Lion Dance with a percussion ensemble playing music. There will also be traditional fan dancers, stilt walkers and of course lucky red envelopes filled with gift cards, while the supply lasts.
The parade route runs down Park Centre Drive in the middle of Downtown Summerlin as long as it is not raining or snowing (ha). Bring the whole family as I am sure your kiddos will love it. Make a night of it and go to one of the myriad of restaurants that offer all types of food in every price range.
The Pig is the twelfth of the Chinese Zodiac animals. There is a myth that the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed Pig’s house and he had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.
The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.
Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well. Pigs have a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life. In Chinese culture it is good to be a Pig.
Maybe I’ll see you at the parade!
