Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman to Attend
Meadows School Students’ 17th Annual Performance on Monday, Feb. 11
WHAT:
To celebrate Chinese New Year and welcome the Year of the Snake, The Meadows School will perform the traditional dragon parade throughout The Forum Shops at Caesars.  The cast of singers and dancers includes 120 Meadows students – 60 from kindergarten and 60 from fifth grade plus the school’s very special guest, founder and Mayor of Las Vegas, Carolyn Goodman.
A time to welcome longevity, wealth and prosperity, this marks the 17th consecutive year The Meadows School has performed at The Forum Shops for this annual celebration.
In preparation for this year’s parade, former Meadows School parent Donna Walker created a special kid-powered snake costume. Additionally, red and gold costumes (Chinese colors of joy), drums and firecrackers (to keep evil spirits away) will be prominently featured in the celebratory parade.  As they wind their way through the premier retail destination, they will stop in front of the Fountain of the Gods to perform.
