It’s been awhile since I visited Ontario Mills Mall. What better time to go back than on Lunar New Year’s Day last Saturday, January 28, 2017? Traditionally, the celebration goes on for 15 days, so we are still in the festival mode.
I arrived just before 1:00 PM and the crew was busy setting up for the celebration full of kid’s activities, live performances, give-a-ways and so much more.
There were gold and red balloons and red lanterns everywhere. People started lining by the event tables.
You can spin a wheel to win prizes which included T-Shirts, candies and more. Of course there would be Fortune Cookies! Kids got to do crafts. There was a ballon artists making all sorts of fun animals, including roosters. I love the beautiful face paintings and so did the kids! Thanks to Teavana for the delicious drinks and Wetzel’s Pretzels. There were also plenty of Almond Cookies for all to enjoy.
The live performances included Stilt Circus, South Coast Martial Arts. The finale was the lion dance by Ane Thanh Lion Dancers! 4 hours went by so fast and we had tons of fun. I got to go shopping afterward and found quite a few bargains!
On behalf of Ontario Mills Mall and its entire staff, we wish everyone a very h=Healthy, Prosperous and Happy Lunar New Year!
