The Cosmopolitan will host a "dotting of the eyes" ceremony and street parade February 1 beginning at 2 p.m. It will begin at the east side entrance off Las Vegas Boulevard before entering the resort.
Meantime, students from Las Vegas' Meadows School will take part in a traditional dragon parade at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace (Friday, Jan. 31 at 10 a.m.). The parade will feature 60 students from kindergarten and 60 from the fifth grade. It will be the 18th consecutive year the Meadows School has performed at the Forum Shops for this celebration.
Venetian and Palazzo will host a ceremonial dragon dance, too (January 31 at 3 p.m.), complete with firecrackers and an eye-painting ceremony. A parade of dancers and drummers dressed in authentic costumes will make its way throughout the properties, starting at the Venetian porte cochere before heading through the casino to Palazzo's Waterfall Atrium.
Gold Coast will host its annual dragon dance on February 5 at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on the casino floor. It will be performed by the Lohan School of Shaolin. Lettuce will also be thrown at spectators. But, you want to get hit. It's considered good luck.
Back on The Strip, Venetian/Palazzo (seen below) and Bellagio (shown in the photo gallery) are also currently featuring beautiful Chinese New Year-inspired botanical exhibits, too. Catch V&P's display through February 28 and Bellagio's through March 1.
