The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Lion Dancing began in China over 2,000 years ago. The imagery and symbolism of the Lion was introduced from India through the influence of Buddhism. The Lion Dance is performed to ward off evil and bring good fortune. The Dancing Lion is accompanied by a drum, a gong, and cymbals. Lion Dances are performed during the Chinese New Year, at grand openings of new businesses, and at weddings and birthday celebrations.
