This has been a huge week for the Atlanta Hawks and things are only getting bigger and better. The basketball scene in Atlanta has been buzzing since the announcement on Thursday night that Hawks star Trae Young has been selected as a 2020 NBA All-Star starter.
As Trae Young prepares for a busy all-star weekend in a few weeks, there is still regular season basketball to be played and the Atlanta Hawks and Terrell Thomas want to give one lucky fan and a guest a chance to catch Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks live in action on Sunday January 26th.
The Atlanta Hawks welcome the city to celebrate the Year of the Rat as they will recognize the Lunar New Year during the team’s home game against the Washington Wizards at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26. On the arena concourse, the Chinese traditions of a Dragon and a Lion dance will take place. These dances have been performed for more than 1,000 years and are meant to bring good luck and prosperity while chasing away evil spirits. As part of the night, State Farm Arena and Executive Chef Joe Schafer have created a menu inspired by the Lunar New Year. The menu will be featured in the venue’s premium, inclusive spaces and available on the restaurant portable outside of Section 116 in the Hawk Walk Market.

As part of the overall game experience, the national anthem will be performed by actress and singer Malea Emma (Tjandrawidjaja) who is eight years old. During a break in the game, two dancers, Tomo from the Cleveland Cavaliers and Kei from the Oklahoma City Thunder, will join the ATL Hawks Dancers for a special routine. Earlier this season, Tomo and Kei joined Chika, the captain of the ATL Hawks Dancers, at the NBA Global Games in Japan.
At halftime, the Chinese American Cultural Performing Group has a specially choreographed water sleeve dance called “The Dance of Beauty” with 20 dancers. Throughout the celebration, the Hawks will have limited surprise-and-delight giveaways including traditional red gift envelopes and plush rats to commemorate the 2020 Chinese Zodiac, in addition to commemorative Lunar New Year mini basketballs.
