The display that gets the most attention is the enormous Dragon display—it’s more than 150 feet long, and they strive to make sure everyone has an enlightening and fun cultural and entertainment experience. Each display is hand made and custom built onsite by Chinese artisans who are keeping a centuries-old tradition alive.
