Chinese Youth League will bring its roaming lion dance to visit Market City.

Lion dance performers mimic a lion’s gestures and emotions to bring luck, fortune and prosperity to the places where they perform. They'll perform their traditional custom of cai qing where the lion plucks a lettuce containing a red-packet hung above the retailer. The red packet contains money which is a token of appreciation for the lion performers.

Visitors can also marvel at the traditional decorations and head to 1909 Dining Precinct to discover delicious restaurants serving special dishes to mark the start of the new year.
