Celebrate Chinese New Year at The Shops at Montebello


Celebrate Chinese New Year at The Shops at Montebello with red envelopes, a Chinese lion dance, and a chance to win a trip for two to the Chinese New Year Festival and Parade in San Francisco.


In honor of Chinese New Year, The Shops at Montebello will bring joy and good fortune to shoppers on Saturday, February 28, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Center Court, with a schedule of events meant to ring in the Year of the Sheep — said to be the most creative sign of the Chinese zodiac.


“The events offer an exciting way to share the beauty of Chinese culture with our community,” said Marida Petitjean, Director of Marketing and Business Development at The Shops at Montebello. “We’re excited to welcome local and international shoppers alike to help kick off the Year of the Sheep in style.”


The entertainment lineup includes a Chinese Lion Dance,  Chinese Kung-Fu demonstrations, a youth performance of Chinese dances, Young Kids Hip-Up, and a Tecno of Nezha Deity dance.


Following the Chinese tradition of giving red envelopes as New Year gifts, The Shops at Montebello will host a red envelope giveaway to guests on February 28 as well. Red is a symbol of energy, happiness and good luck in Chinese culture.


Shoppers who visit The Shops at Montebello can also enter to win a trip for two to see the Chinese New Year Festival and Parade in San Francisco on March 7, 2015 by stopping by Guest Services. The prize includes a $500 Southwest Airlines gift card, a $500 Hilton Hotel gift card and two tickets to the parade.
