Food & Wine | Celebrate The Chinese New Year with Shangri-La Hotel Toronto

Despite the cold weather that has settled on Toronto, it seems as though the city is heating up with Chinese New Year festivities. Our friends at Shangri-La Hotel Toronto have something very special in store for us all starting on February 19th. Come & see why this is the place to be to celebrate a new year in a momentous way.

“The Lion Dance has been a traditional part of Chinese culture for many centuries and will kick off the hotel’s Chinese New Year celebrations on 19 February 2015. Starting at 2:00 p.m., the Chinese Kung Fu Institute of Canada Ltd. dance troupe will perform a traditional Lion Dance and eye dotting ceremony in the Lounge Lounge. Guests will see the lion dancers demonstrate their agility and skill, moving energetically with the lion’s head and body to the beat of big drums and the clashing of cymbals.”
