L.A. Chinese New Year Celebrations

The Chinese New Year officially began on February 5th, and continues through the 19th, welcoming the Year of the Pig.  With huge Chinese communities throughout L.A., including Chinatown in Downtown Los Angeles, Monterey Park, San Marino, Anaheim and Long Beach, there are about 530,000 Chinese-Americans.  We are 2nd only to New York in population numbers, so look for many activities throughout the area. When in L.A. one can visit the Chinese American Museum in DTLA, located at 425 N. Los Angeles Street.  Upcoming events include the March 7th Survival and Loss: A Joint Discussion of Los Angeles and San Francisco Chinatowns. The Original Farmers Market in Hollywood also has dozens of Lunar New Year “Lucky 8” Specials between now and February 10th.
