SM City Baguio will be welcoming the Chinese New Year with the Bell Church Athletic Club performing the famous lion prosperity dance at the mall atrium, Jan. 25.
The dance troupe will perform the Chinese tradition called, “caiqing,” where they will roam around the mall to bring good luck and fortune to businesses.
The lion dance will start from the lower basement and the finale will be at the mall atrium.
As part of the celebrations for the Year of the Metal Rat, a “lucky market” will open at the lower ground floor of the mall. The market will feature treats and items that highlight Chinese culture especially those that enhance luck in the coming Year of the Metal Rat.
