February is going to be an exciting month at South Coast Plaza with Lunar New Year events, specials and giveaways.  The Year of the Snake will kick-off on February 5, with a towering snake exhibit and floral arrangement.  The exhibit will be on display in Jewel Court until February 17.

Between February 7 and 17, shoppers have a chance to win prizes and a South Coast Plaza shopping spree.  There will be an enter-to-win promotion at the four concierge desks with special red envelopes concealing prizes.  Thousands of envelopes will be distributed, but only 50 contain a prize.
