Maui mall celebrates Year of the Ox


POSTED: Sunday, January 25, 2009

The Lunar New Year is celebrated with dancing lions from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday at Lahaina Cannery Mall on Maui.

The family-friendly event starts the Year of the Ox, with traditional firecrackers and the feeding of the lion (dancers from Oahu-based Au's Shaolin Arts Society) to bring good fortune into the new year.

The event follows Saturday's regular 1 p.m. keiki hula performance, and all the activities are free.

Lahaina Cannery Mall is on the north end of Lahaina Town fronting Honoapiilani Highway and Front Street. For more information, call (808) 661-5304, or visit www.lahainacannery.com.
