 River Oaks District and Le Colonial will amplify their annual Lunar New Year celebration with two live performances from local non-profit Soaring Pheonix. On February 13, the District will be adorned with Lunar New Year décor creating a festive backdrop for an afternoon of live dragon dancing performances.   

At 3:00 p.m., Soaring Pheonix will dazzle spectators with a 45-minute traditional lion dance which is considered one of the most important Lunar New Year traditions symbolizing wisdom, power and superiority.

The events will be at 3:00 p.m. (adjacent from River Oaks District’s plaza across from Toulouse)  and 5:30 p.m. (Le Colonial).

A short intermission will take place prior to a second show held throughout Le Colonial’s restaurant commencing at 5:30 p.m. Guests will be treated to spectacular costumes, music and creative expression creating a multi-sensory celebratory dining experience. Restaurant reservations can be made via phone or online.
