This year, Calgary’s luxury downtown shopping centre, the CORE, is celebrating the Lunar New Year, the Year of the Pig. The Lunar New Year is celebrated on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, according to the traditional Chinese Calendar. In Chinese culture, pigs are a symbol of wealth.
From February 2 to 10, 2019, The Core is inviting you to experience cultural entertainment, Instagram-worthy displays, and discounts on must-have brands. Plus, receive an $88 CORE gift card when you buy $800 in CORE gift cards (limit 2 per customer and while quantities last).
There will be plenty of fun for all ages throughout the week. Children are invited to find the Lunar New Year pig hidden in different store windows and tell the Guest Services team (located on the second floor) where the pig was spotted to receive a lucky red envelope.
Shoppers will enjoy several exciting performances taking place at 12 pm on the second level glass bridge by the Body Shop. See complete schedule below:
February 2, 2019 – Lion Dance Performance
