Join in one of LA's oldest traditions at the 115th (count them—115!) annual Chinese New Year parade and festival in Downtown's Chinatown. The two-day, neighborhood-wide celebration brings multi-stage acts from kung fu demos to traditional music acts. This year, East meets West as old meets new with food trucks for noshing, ping-pong for playing and a craft beer garden with local breweries for boozing. Families can also join in the action with kid-friendly face painting, storytelling and paper folding. It may be the year of the horse, but the main attraction is the yearly Golden Dragon Parade—Mayor Eric Garcetti leads the pack as grand marshal—which makes its route on Saturday, the 1st from 1-3pm.
