The premier luxury retail destination will welcome guests visiting during the celebratory season with dazzling decor, a festive parade, retail special offerings and more.

Illuminated Chinese Dragon Display
A legendary creature in Chinese mythology and folklore, the dragon is a traditional symbol of power, strength, and good luck. The Forum Shops at Caesars is once again sharing this fabled creature in a big way by welcoming a 22-ft. long, 6-ft. wide and 12-ft. high dragon to the world-renowned retail destination. Perfectly situated on the Fortuna Terrace near the entrance to The Forum Shops from Caesars Palace casino, the massive 950-lb steel-framed dragon is covered in 30,000 red and amber LED lights, many of which flicker, giving the mythical beast a vibrant look and dynamic feel. The dazzling dragon sits upon a lush red carpet surrounded by hand-painted wood pillars, gold fencing and red velvet ropes. The impressive display was custom created exclusively for The Forum Shops and will be on display throughout the Chinese New Year season.
