Q: Will there be a traditional lion dance?
A: Hell yeah, there’s going to be a traditional lion dance!
Come and celebrate the Year of the Ox at Albee Square on Saturday, February 13th between 1:30pm and 3pm. There will be a traditional lion dance and a “selfie-station,” which honestly sounds like a fantastic reason to get outside and keep the days from all blending together due to the pandemic.
In terms of the lion dance performance, the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership website claims (emphasis mine):
Tradition says that a good lion dance performance brings one good luck and happiness!
Note that they do not mention of what a bad lion dance performance brings. Crossing my fingers that the performance is good…
If you selfie-and-share (at a safe social distance, of course) you’ll get a traditional red envelope containing a small prize. The biggest of the small prizes is a gift card for food at Dekalb Market.
