Celebrate the Year of the Tiger with some lions today.
The action is already underway in Chinatown, where the streets are closed to traffic. Until 5:00, a host of martial arts clubs will be donning traditional lion dance costumes and parading from business to business. At each stop they perform tricks for rewards, spreading good luck along the way. Just follow the sound of drumming and check out the show. Head to China Pearl for dim sum afterwards.
