The BIA will celebrate the Year of the Dragon on February 16, 2024, on Hastings Street. Lunar New Year Celebrations are a means of renewing one’s luck and energy for the year. Lion Dances are used to ward away all evil and represent a purging of all things considered ominous. The Year of the Dragon is expected to be a very exciting and powerful year of prosperous business success!
The celebration will include a Lucky Southern Malaysian Lion with 2 Chinese Lion Dancers, 3 Chinese Instrument Performers and 1 Chinese Drum Entourage. They will tour Hastings Street and bless the inside of those businesses that have registered with the BIA. To be blessed, the merchant must contribute a nominal fee of $20 enclosed in a lucky red envelope. We will provide a head of lettuce for participating merchants to hang in their entrance way way, along with a lucky red envelope.
