Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman to Attend Meadows School Students’ 18th
Annual Performance on Friday, Jan 31
To celebrate the first day of the Chinese New Year and welcome the Year of the Horse, students from The Meadows School will perform the traditional dragon parade throughout The Forum Shops at Caesars on Friday, Jan. 31 beginning at 10 a.m. The cast of singers and dancers includes 120 Meadows students – 60 from kindergarten and 60 from fifth grade plus the school’s very special guest, founder and Mayor of Las Vegas Carolyn Goodman.
The Year of the Horse is considered a fortunate year that brings luck and good things. This marks the 18th consecutive year The Meadows School has performed at The Forum Shops for this annual celebration.
This year’s parade is particularly special as the Meadows School mascot is the Mustang and it is the Year of the Horse. Adding to the distinction of the day, two high school seniors will be speaking during the event. These two students have attended Meadows since kindergarten and both first performed in the parade at The Forum Shops as kindergarteners. Red and gold costumes (Chinese colors of joy), drums and firecrackers (to keep evil spirits away) will be prominently featured in the celebratory parade. As they wind their way through the premier retail destination, they will stop in front of the Fountain of the Gods to perform.
Performers will begin the parade at the entrance off The Strip near Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab, continuing throughout the entire shopping center and stopping for a primary performance at the Fountain of the Gods in front of Tiffany & Co. Mayor Carolyn Goodman will make remarks at this time. The parade will then continue, past the newly-renovated Atlantis Show and ending at The Forum Shops lower valet area.
