Celebrate Chinese New Year Today

February 24, 2018

Maki Sushi & Grill - Golden Colorado

Celebration of Chinese New Year is currently in full swing. February 16th-26th is the time of the Spring Festival. Maki Sushi is hosting a Lion Dance Show today at 1PM. According to Wikipedia, “Lion dance…is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture and other Asian countries in which performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume to bring good luck and fortune. The lion dance is usually performed during the Chinese New Year and other Chinese traditional, cultural and religious festivals. It may also be performed at important occasions such as business opening events, special celebrations or wedding ceremonies, or may be used to honour special guests by the Chinese communities.”

This is a great reason to have lunch today at Maki Sushi, then stay to enjoy the show!
