FASHION SHOW AND GRAND CANAL SHOPPES AT THE VENETIAN & THE PALAZZO HOST LUNAR NEW YEAR FESTIVITIES
Events take place February 8 and February 12, 2016
Fashion Show and Grand Canal Shoppes are pleased to provide distinct festivities to support Lunar New Year. Combined, the two retail meccas encompass over 3 million square feet, 350 boutiques, nine department stores and over two dozen restaurants on one central corner of Las Vegas Boulevard.
Lunar New Year festivities kick off at Grand Canal Shoppes on February 8 at 4 p.m. with the signature fan dance above the waterfall. During and after the fan dance, more than 500 red envelopes will be distributed to guests. The envelopes will be filled with a prize — anything from a gift card to a chocolate gold coin. Each red envelope will also be bundled with signature retail incentives available at participating Grand Canal Shoppes brands. Red envelopes are traditionally handed out during Lunar New Year and symbolize happiness and wealth.
On Friday, Feb. 12, guests can enjoy an afternoon of festivities live on the runway at Fashion Show. Key events include the debut of the dragon, a signature lion dance, Chinese culture costumes courtesy of the Culture Ministry of the Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in San Francisco launching the first-time partnership that these traditional pieces will be showcased in Las Vegas and entertainment from the Hunan Troupe that will include a variety show complete with acrobatics, folklore and musical acts. The festivities begin at 1:30 p.m.
On Saturday, Feb. 13 – Feb. 14, Saks Fifth Avenue will hit the runway with must-see runway shows every hour on the hour from noon until 5pm. The lion dance kick off each show.
In addition to these events, Fashion Show will also boast an array of brands that are specifically providing unique products and incentives for Lunar New Year. A sampling of participants includes Lorna Jane, Michael Kors, Neiman Marcus and St. John. To pick up a printed rack card with a complete list of participants for Fashion Show, visit Guest Services.*
