These lucky loyal customers have now experienced a bit of good luck from today's lion dance. See below post for photos and a brief recap of today's event.
Thanks everyone for showing up to today's lion dance performance at Springfield Marketplace to signify the last days of Chinese New Year. We were treated to a Dragon Dance, Lion Dance and Kung Fu Martial Arts Demonstration by Tom Lo's Martial Arts Group. The weather was on our side today with clear blue skies. Little kids were treated to free giveaways (either a Rubik's cube keychain or cute LED light of their choice) and the event went smoothly without a hitch. The lions got their red packet and lettuce (choy ching) after a small fight and the businesses also had a visit for good luck and prosperity. Some members of the audience fed lucky red packets into the mouths of the lions to help bring good luck for the year. We would like to thank our sponsors - LRNJ Property Group, Island Fresh Cafe, Nina's Bakery and Springfield Garden Chinese & Malaysian Restaurant for their support. See below for more photos from today's event.
