Also known as the Lunar New Year, Chinese New Year is an important centuries-old tradition widely celebrated in Hawaii. During Ala Moana Center's 3-day celebration, we welcome you to enjoy family-friendly entertainment, cultural performances, and of course, lion dancing. Plus, encounter the sights and sounds of more than 20 lions spreading good luck and collecting lai see (red money envelopes) from various stores throughout the Center.
Take a picture with the Chinese lion head to commemorate Chinese New Year.
Get a fun photo in front of the Selfie Wall, decorated specially for Chinese New Year. Be sure to post and share using #AlaMoanaCenter.
Don't miss these heart-pumping displays of true strength and agility as lion dancers jump on a series of poles to the thumping of drum beats.
Witness dragon dancing and kung fu demonstrations and performances by Phoenix Dance Chamber at Centerstage, and lion dancing throughout the Center at various storefronts.
Meet and take pictures with the members from the Hawaii Lion Dance Association and learn about the history of lion dancing.
