Weddings and Lucky Lions

Lucky Lions greet the wedding couple, family and friends.

Lucky Lions are announced by a large colorful drum and can appear from around the corner, or from backstage. In this case four Lucky Lions appeared from behind a stand of trees. HTCMLI students train in coordinating the movements with the drum cadences. But nothing is set in stone and Lucky Lions expect the unexpected, changing their position or action depending on the circumstances. The Lucky Lions performance can include a lucky lettuce ceremony, awarding of good wishes and luck, or the presentation of a prepared gift.
