One of your louder event options this weekend is Chinatowns 109th Annual Golden Dragon Parade. Wait is that right? 109th? Fact-checkers, please! Turns out it is correct, which in L.A. years is like 900. So come celebrate the Year of the Rat with more than 100 floats, marching bands, Mayor Antonio in a Chinese getup, drummers, grand marshal Mickey Mouse and more. The Chinese New Year Festival goes on throughout the weekend, with comics, food, pop bands, taiko drummers, Chinese acrobats and kiddie fun. Broadway & Hill Street, Chinatown; parade Sat., Feb. 9, 2-5 p.m. Sat., Feb. 9, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 10, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2008
