This annual event is steeped in ancient tradition. Long ago, each year of the Chinese calendar was designed to correspond with a unique animal: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, or the pig. Each animal bestows its unique characteristics to all of the people born into the year that it represents.
People born in the Year of the Horse are known for being positive, powerful, clever, and quick witted. Some notable figures hailing from past Year of the Horse celebrations are Theodore Roosevelt, Rembrandt, Aretha Franklin, and Sean Connery.
The Chinese New Year is a highly anticipated holiday worldwide, and is the biggest event of the year in many places. Join Spirit Mountain in celebrating what promises to be a night to remember, right from the heart of the Willamette Valley.
Beginning at 6pm, Oregon’s #1 gaming destination will be transformed into an oasis of traditional celebration as Dragon Dancers weave throughout the room. Whether you’re getting lucky at our slots or playing poker at the gaming tables, you can enjoy this live entertainment every half hour from 6pm to 10 pm.
If you are at one of the gaming tables, prepare to win big with our "Lucky Money" envelopes. The special envelopes will be distributed each hour from 6pm onward until they are all gone, so make sure to stick around throughout the evening.
