Free Cultural Event Brings Good Fortune to Resort Shopping and Dining Destination
KOHALA COAST – The community is invited to The Shops at Mauna Lani tonight (Friday, Feb. 27) for the Fortune Festival from 5-8 p.m.
According to organizers:
…the Fortune Festival honors the Year of the Goat with colorful Chinese celebrations, food, music and more. A powerful hundred-foot Dragon will parade through the shopping center while firecrackers frighten off any evil spirits, and the traditional Lion Dance, with drums and cymbals, lets onlookers “feed” the Lion for good fortune in the year ahead. A Chinese fortune teller, martial arts demonstration, fire-blowing and costume contests for children and adults, plus Asian-inspired cuisine, crackling shrimp chips, and a beer and wine garden add to the festivities.
