The Luckiest Day – Chinatown

The Chinatown Arts District will be celebrating the luckiest day in the entire millenium.  The number 8 in Chinese culture has always represented a number of luck, so today/tonight will represent that.  The Triple 8 Street Festival will feature live entertainment from the Cherry Blossom Cabaret, Na Hoku nominees Doolin Rakes, and Saloon Pilots.  There will also be eight lion dances going on at 8pm.

Also, Hotel Street will be the center of everything, as the street will be shut down and a gigantic 16 ft. by 20 ft. Screen will be erected to show the opening ceremonies of the 29th Olympiad from Beijing.

Come check out this event before hitting up the massive Get Down in Chinatown event later on in the night.  The Triple 8 Street Festival begins at 6pm at the Chinatown Gateway Park.  The event is free and open to the public, so check it out.
