The County of Maui hosts a Chinese New Year celebration featuring firecrackers, a martial arts exhibition, and lion dancers.

The event will take place at 9 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, on the lawn of the County Building in Wailuku.

Returning this year is Master Ben Seng Au and his Shaolin Arts Academy.

The lion dance performance includes elaborate traditional costumes, drums, cymbals and other Chinese percussion instruments.


Red “li-shi” envelopes fed to the lions — in the hopes of obtaining good luck in the New Year — will be available at the event.
