Queens’ Marketplace will celebrate Chinese New Year over a six-day celebration starting today, Feb. 1.

Also known as the Lunar New Year, Chinese New Year is an important centuries-old tradition widely celebrated in Hawai‘i. Events scheduled in Waikoloa include New Year-themed activities. Keiki can participate in a scavenger hunt to learn more about the holiday and win a lucky prize bag, shoppers can receive a lucky numbered gift card (with purchase), and the whole family can take pictures in the Chinese New Year-themed decorated Coronation Pavilion.

Inspired by the Chinese New Year tradition of giving and lai see (red envelopes filled with money), shoppers who redeem $150 or more in receipts, mall-wide throughout the week, can pick up a red envelope at Yoga Barre Hawaii. Each envelope contains a gift card with a lucky number value. Gifts cards are in values of $22, $28, and $88. Lai see envelopes are limited to one per person per day and while supplies last.

A scavenger hunt will also take place throughout the week from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. To play, start the hunt at the Coronation Pavilion. Look for the QR code posted on a sandwich board sign and scan it with a smart phone to get the clue that will help you find the next lai see sign. At the fourth and final stop, scan the QR code and it will reveal where to pick up a prize bag filled with lucky treats.


To commemorate the Year of the Tiger with a picture in the Coronation Pavilion, decorated with a spectacular lion balloon sculpture and red lanterns in honor of the Chinese New Year. Between Feb. 4-6, post your photo on Instagram and/or Facebook and tag @QueensMarketplace for a chance to win a $200 gift card to Waikoloa Luxury Cinemas. A winner will be announced on Feb. 7 via social media.
