As part of its tradition of celebrating the Lunar New Year, Shang has culled a number of events that fittingly mark one of the most important occasions in the Philippines.
Appreciate Chinese art. Marvel at unique posters created by the students of the Ateneo Celadon at the Grand Atrium until the Lunar New Year January 22. On the same day, mall guests can have the opportunity to express their creativity by joining an hour-long Denim painting workshop also at the Grand Atrium.
Watch a flick at the Spring Film Festival. One of the beloved film festivals in the country is back at the Shang! The Spring Film Festival runs at the Red Carpet Cinema until January 24. This year’s lineup showcases the beauty of ancient and modern China and explores a wide range of themes including self-discovery, transcendental love, and longing.
Enjoy street eats and treats. Catch the great fireworks display on January 21 at 8PM to welcome the year of the Rabbit! Browse and buy Lunar New Year eats and unique finds as Shang’s Streetscape transforms into a Chinese Street Market from January 20 to 22.
Catch traditional Chinese music performances. Get into a festive mood on January 22 as Shang presents special musical performances featuring Chinese classical music using traditional instruments at the Grand Atrium, 4:30PM. Mall guests can expect to watch exciting dragon and lion dances too. A highlight in every Lunar New Year celebration, both the dragon and the lion are considered as auspicious creatures in Chinese culture, performing these traditional dances during festive occasions are meant to chase evil spirits away and welcome prosperous times. To be more specific, the dragon represents power, boldness, and excellence, while the lion symbolizes strength, stability, and superiority.
Embrace a fresh start—and one that’s full of joy and bounty, celebrate the Year of the Rabbit at Shangri-La Plaza.
