Chinese New Year, aka Spring Festival, is the most significant holiday of the year in China, as well as in countries and cities around the world with a large Chinese population. One of the most diverse cities in the world, Los Angeles celebrates the Lunar New Year with colorful parades, family friendly festivals and hotel and shopping specials. The Lunar New Year is not only a time for family gatherings, but is also when people honor ancestors and give thanks for good fortune. Sumptuous meals with “lucky” dishes, red envelopes (hongbao) and firecrackers are all traditional parts of the festivities.

Los Angeles is celebrating the Year of the Dog with events ranging from a traditional temple ceremony to the spectacular Golden Dragon Parade, huge street festivals and great deals for shopping and hotels. Xin nian kuai le!
