Crown creates a spectacular Lunar New Year experience in Melbourne!

February 13, 2018 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Crown Melbourne’s Riverwalk flame towers have received an unexpected make-over – transforming into fire-breathing dragons thanks to the work of some of Australia’s greatest street artists to celebrate Lunar New Year. Taking residence on the Riverwalk over the past three days, five local artists painted bespoke dragon head designs on each fire tower to create a real-life fire breathing dragon show and a live art installation for the public. Acclaimed street artists Mike Makatron, Facter, Mulga, Conrad Bizjak and Ruskidd were commissioned to create the artworks which pay homage to one of the most iconic symbols in Asian culture – the dragon.

The fire breathing dragons were launched this morning and the modern exhibition will be on show for families to enjoy in the heart of Melbourne until the 27th February, breathing fire every half hour from 8pm each night! It is a super exciting project!

In addition to the Fire Breathing Dragons, Crown Melbourne will continue its annual program of Lunar New Year festivities which includes the Zodiac Spectacular in the Atrium and the iconic Hawkers Bazaar offering unrivalled Asian cuisine, live entertainment and activities for the entire family.
