The Chinese New Year Celebration in Kihei

Yesterday at the Safeway Shopping Center in Kihei (South Maui), two giant dragons danced made their way from store to store amid the rhythmic pounding of drums, clanging gongs, and throngs of people feeding them money in little red envelopes. The dragons are considered auspicious and when you you give a dragon a donation, you're ensuring your good luck for the coming year.

Every year we make this our custom. Enjoy the images below!

I like the close up of the dragon face. Fun. Happy year of the Rat!
