It's The Year Of The Monkey! Chinese Dragon Now On Site At The Forum Shops At Caesar's Palace
A legendary creature in Chinese mythology and folklore, the dragon is a traditional symbol of power, strength, and good luck. The Forum Shops at Caesars is once again sharing this fabled creature in a big way by welcoming a 22-ft. long, 6-ft. wide and 12-ft. high dragon to the world-renowned retail destination.
Set for assembly and debut on Jan. 5 on the Fortuna Terrace near the entrance to The Forum Shops from Caesars Palace casino, the massive 950-lb steel-framed dragon is covered in 30,000 red and amber LED lights, many of which flicker, giving the mythical beast a vibrant look and dynamic feel.
The dazzling dragon will sit upon a lush red carpet surrounded by hand-painted wood pillars, gold fencing and red velvet ropes. The dazzling display was custom created exclusively for The Forum Shops.
While the Chinese New Year begins on Feb. 8, 2016 and it is the Year of the Monkey, the traditional Chinese dragon will be on display at The Forum Shops beginning in January and throughout the Chinese New Year celebratory season.
For the 20th consecutive year, The Forum Shops at Caesars will welcome students from the Meadows School, who will perform the traditional dragon parade throughout The Forum Shops at Caesars on Monday, Feb 8. The cast of singers and dancers includes 120 Meadows students – 60 from kindergarten and 60 from fifth grade plus the school’s very special guest, founder and Mayor of Las Vegas Carolyn Goodman.
