Every year on the first day of the first month of the Chinese lunar calendar Las Vegas is transformed with extravagant and bright decor. Spectacular displays show a giant money tree and symbols of the Chinese New Year. Hotels and casinos are decorated with Chinese lanterns and ornaments.
Traditionally, a dragon parade and carnival procession take place in the city as well. The main venue for the celebration is Fremont Street. Restaurants abound with various Chinese dishes. People wish each other wealth, health, and good luck.
Another excellent thing to do during CNY festivities is visiting Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, which hosts a vibrant seasonal display from mid-January through early March.
