The District is set to usher in the Year of the Pig on Saturday, Feb. 2 with a lucky red envelope giveaway, lion dance performances and more.
“We’re so excited to host our first Lunar New Year event at The District,” said marketing director Shannon Campbell. “It will be a fun-filled day to celebrate our diverse community, with lots of great activities for the entire family to enjoy.”
Beginning at noon Saturday, Feb. 2, the first 500 guests will receive a lucky red envelope containing a crisp $1 bill, a tradition that symbolizes good fortune for the coming year. Highlights of the event will also include lively lion dance performances at 12:15 p.m. and 1:15 p.m., along with fan dancers and plenty of kid-friendly activities. The lion dancers will begin their spirited performances outside AMC Tustin 14 and make their way to Union Market Tustin, stopping along the way to “gobble up” lucky red envelopes from participating shops and stores – and any families that want to join in on the interactive lion dance action, too.
Other Lunar New Year-themed entertainment includes an Asian calligrapher and water color artist duo who will provide complimentary renderings of guests’ Chinese zodiac symbols and Year of the Pig illustrations. Keep those smartphones and cameras ready for a festive
photo backdrop, too. Children can also enjoy several activity stations, including watercolor painting, color-your-own dragon, and create-your-own paper pig crafts, along with face painters and balloon artists offering dragon or pig-themed designs and creations. The entire event is free to the public.
The lucky red envelopes will be distributed at a booth near AMC Tustin 14 on a first-come, first-serve basis on Saturday, Feb. 2. Additionally, several stores and eateries across The District will be offering exclusive Lunar New Year promotions, including:
- Jasper Plum will be giving away lucky red envelopes filled with vouchers good for up to 50-percent off your total purchase; red envelopes will be given to the first 50 customers on a first-come, first-served basis on Saturday 2/2.
