Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Join in one of L.A.’s oldest traditions at the 121st (count them—121!) annual Chinese New Year parade and festival in Downtown’s Chinatown. The Chinatown Central Plaza celebration brings multi-stage acts from kung fu demos to traditional music acts. 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 rat, but the main attraction is the yearly Golden Dragon Parade, which makes its route (kicking off at Hill and Ord Streets, and concluding at Broadway and Cesar Chavez) on Saturday from 1 to 3pm.
