Queen Kaʻahumanu Center celebrates the Chinese New Year of the Rat on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2019 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

The annual, high energy celebration consists of a martial arts presentation, firecrackers and colorful lion dance by Au’s Shaolin Arts Society.

This year, Chinese astrology will celebrate the Year of the Rat, which is the first of the twelve animals in the recurring 12-year Chinese zodiac cycle, and a symbol of wealth and surplus.

“This is one of our most popular, annual traditions at QKC. Join us for this exciting celebration,” said Ed Krampitz, QKC General Manager. “Red lai see envelopes will be available at Guest Services to feed the lions in hopes of obtaining good luck and prosperity in the new year. Gung Hee Fat Choy,” said Krampitz.

Queen Ka‘ahumanu Center is Maui’s largest regional shopping center and is home to the island’s only department stores, Macy’s and Sears. The center also features national brands such as Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works.
