In celebration of Lunar New Year, this Toronto mall has been taken over by a massive 40-foot golden dragon for the month. Yorkdale Shopping Centre is going all in with Lunar New Year celebrations and here’s what to know.

Now until February 25th, mall guests are invited to check out the largest indoor dragon installation in the East Court near Canada Goose.

Snap a pic with the 40-foot display and enjoy complimentary Calligraphy for New Year blessings from February 5th to February 9th from 5 PM to 8 PM, while supplies last.

In addition to that, guests can walk through a passageway with golden archways and a runway floor decal decorated with florals and dragons, until February 23.
