Accompanied by rhythmic drums and percussion, the lion will visit the variety of shops, restaurants and businesses at Kona Coast Shopping Center. The lion will be fed donations in red envelopes, known as lai see (lucky money), believed to bring prosperity to the giver throughout the year. Families are welcome to participate in the tradition, which often delights keiki.
