Salt at Our Kakaʻako celebrates Chinese New Year and welcomes the Year of the Pig. Festivities include a traditional lion dance, an appearance by the 2019 Narcissus Court and more.
The celebration begins with a martial arts demonstration and traditional Chinese lion dance by the Asian Lion Dance Team in the main courtyard. Accompanied by rhythmic drums and percussion, the lion will then visit shops, restaurants and businesses at Salt at Our Kakaʻako. The lion will be fed donations in red envelopes, known as lai see (lucky money), believed to bring prosperity to the giver throughout the year. Participating in this tradition can be fun for family members, both young and old.
