Barona Valley Ranch Resort & Casino will celebrate the Year of the Ox this Lunar New Year, from Monday, January 26 through Monday, February 9.

The celebration includes cultural festivities and good fortune giveaways.

On January 26 at 7 p.m. enjoy a performance by lion and dragon dancers, a time-honored tradition that celebrates the New Year with large, decorative animal costumes that are carried by animated dancers.

A VIP opening ceremony drawing will be held at the Fireside Stage at 8 p.m. with a total cash prize pool of $8,888 – a very lucky number in Asian cultures.

In true Lunar New Year tradition, Barona will also reward casino guests with free Hong Bao (lucky money) on the first and last days of the event.

The closing promotion, held on February 9 at 8 p.m., will feature giveaways including $25,000 in cash and a Mercedes-Benz.
