Barona Resort & Casino will celebrate the “Year of the Snake” from February 10 through 24. Colorful cultural performances and gifts of Hong Bao are just a few of the ways that players can celebrate at San Diego’s best casino. Players will also have a chance to win a share of $240,000 in cash giveaways during the two-weeks of Lunar New Year festivities.
The Year of the Snake is expected to be marked by prosperity, gracious morality and great wisdom. Barona will welcome this New Year beginning on February 10 at 8 p.m. with the traditional lion and dragon dance, a blessing to bring good luck, at the main entrance and will be followed by a parade throughout the casino. The dance performance will repeat on February 17 at 8 p.m. and culminate on February 24 at 8 p.m. with a repeat of the lion and dragon dance.
The exciting giveaways will take place on February 10, 17 and 24 from noon to 10 p.m. when Barona will be giving away $1,000 every 15 minutes. Then at 10 p.m., three players will each win $5,000 and one lucky player will win $25,000.
The Lunar New Year is a chance to celebrate a wonderful annual tradition with our players,” said Rick Salinas, general manager of Barona Resort & Casino. “We invite our players to welcome and honor the New Year with us and wish everyone good fortune.”
