Pearl River’s Year of the Tiger Celebration: Our Best Lion Dance Ever

In keeping with our time-honored tradition, Pearl River hosted our annual New Year’s Lion Dance on February 21. We rang in the Year of the Tiger with an extravagant show by Master Wen’s martial arts troupe (which is as much a Chinatown institution as we are). Watch the video below:

Thanks to Tandao Kung Fu for their excellent film work. Thanks to our loyal customers (and new fans) for braving the chilly weather to celebrate with us. We look forward to sharing many more Lunar New Years with you.
