We invite you and your family to enjoy a virtual festive display of cultural entertainment and Lunar New Year traditions – the dragon dance and feeding of the lions. The event features a cultural performance from Grammy Award-winning artist Abigail Washburn and world-famous guzheng musician Wu Fei. Guests will have an opportunity to make a wish for prosperity, happiness and longevity as we honor the tradition of the wishing tree.
