The lion dance brings good luck and prosperity. Hong De Lion and Dragon Dance Association’s Lion on High Poles is an acrobatic lion dance, performed – as the name suggests – on high poles.

For White Night 2018, the lion will be white and silver to best reflect the white lights that will illuminate it. The dance will follow a traditional theme in which the lion will climb the mountain, search for and retrieve the greens before returning back from the mountain.

At the end of the performance, the lion will be joined by two LED lions to reveal lucky scrolls.
