It’s a tradition at The Venetian Macao to celebrate Chinese New Year with a series of activities, and 2015 will mark the eighth year of these festivities. This year there will be a series of goings-on at the expansive outdoor area of The Venetian Macao from Feb. 6 to March 1, 2015 to usher in the Year of the Goat. “Seasons of Prosperity” will feature an eclectic mix of traditional Chinese and contemporary events which will make for a truly unforgettable Chinese New Year experience.
Hosted by The Venetian Macao, the admission-free “Seasons of Prosperity” is supported by the Macau Government Tourist Office and offers a mix of entertainment and fun that every family can enjoy. The outdoor area will be home to a host of spectacular festivities, including 18 hand-decorated goat sculptures, a Chinese New Year-themed mini model exhibition that will showcase traditional Chinese New Year activities, fabulous 3-D illusion paintings that offer a great opportunity for visitors to take photographs of themselves interacting with the paintings, a 3D light and sound spectacular, a drum show, an interactive magic act and a gigantic 30-foot-high peach blossom tree.
