The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas Ring In The Year Of The Goat With Traditional Lion


The Venetian® and The Palazzo® Las Vegas Ring in the Year of the Goat
with Traditional Lion Dance and Firecrackers


The Venetian and The Palazzo welcomed the Year of the Goat on Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015, with a traditional lion dance and eye ceremony. Mr. Sheldon Adelson, chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands Corporation, along with his wife, Dr. Miriam Adelson were in attendance to paint the eyes of the dragon and ceremoniously bring it to life, kicking off Chinese New Year 2015.

Also in attendance to usher in the new year were president and COO of Las Vegas Sands Corp., Rob Goldstein, president and COO of The Venetian, The Palazzo, and Sands Expo, John Caparella; president of international marketing, Larry Chiu; and senior vice president of operations, Pete Boyd.

Dancers from the Yau Kung Moon Lion and Dragon Dance Team from Los Angeles and San Francisco paraded through both properties, blessing the baccarat salons in the casinos. The colorful event featured a parade of dancers and drummers dressed in authentic costumes who made their way through The Waterfall Atrium of The Palazzo to bring good luck throughout 2015.

Other celebratory visuals include a “Year of the Goat” display inside The Waterfall Atrium & Gardens of The Palazzo.  To commemorate the “Year of the Goat” the resort’s floral and horticulture department partnered with a team of artisans, and consulted with a feng shui master, to produce the massive “Year of the Goat” art installation. Because the “Year of the Goat” also celebrates sheep and ram, the art display features beautifully sculpted figures of each. Guests are encouraged to revel in the enchanting beauty of this display when strolling through The Waterfall Atrium & Gardens of The Palazzo.

In addition, guests can also marvel at the 58 traditional I Ching coins, representing fortune and wealth, which sit among the mountain of the main art installation. The Chinese symbols on the coins read, “may your happiness be according to your wishes,” and the reverse of the coin reads, “live as long as the tortoise and the crane.” According to custom, it is suggested that guests walk clockwise around the feature display three times to bring blessings of heaven, earth, and mankind upon them.

This year’s “Year of the Goat” art installation features:

  • 3 unique hand-sculpted, life-size rams
  • 8 hand-sculpted sheep adorned with fleece of fresh carnations
  • 6-foot hand-loomed brocade silk and jade and red and gold lanterns
  • 58 I Ching coins
  • 8 Bamboo Trees
  • 28 Tangerine Trees
  • 2,400 selected plants including
    • Phalaenopsis orchids
    • Cymbidium orchids
    • Kalanchoe
    • Hyacinth

The Year of the Goat art installation will run through March 9.
