The Year of the Horse starts January 31, but Vegas resorts are already unveiling their tributes to Chinese New Year and this year’s zodiac sign. Here’s a glimpse at how the Strip—never big on subtlety—is marking the occasion:
Wynn Las Vegas Fifteen months in the works, three 800-pound, 9-foot-tall Tang Dynasty-style horse sculptures have taken over the Wynn atrium and the garden outside Encore’s baccarat room.
Bellagio The Conservatory’s Chinese New Year display, an annual highlight, features seven life-size horses set around a mini mountain above a koi pond with a rearing gold stallion at the top.
Cosmopolitan A “Dotting of the Eyes” ceremony will take place February 1 at 2 p.m. at the casino’s Strip entrance, featuring dragon and lion dancers who will parade through the casino floor to the High Limit Lounge.
