Strip casinos go all out for the Year of the Horse

Bellagio’s Year of the Horse display.

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.
