More than 2,000 individuals attended the event, which ushered in the Year of the Fire Rooster and was sponsored by UCI’s John S. & Marilyn Long U.S.-China Institute for Business, Law & Society in partnership with several schools and South Coast Plaza. “Dragons are believed to bring good luck to people,” Huang says. “Therefore, the longer the dragon is in the dance, the more luck it will bring to the community.”
