Ring in the Lunar New Year with the 116th annual Golden Dragon Parade and Chinese New Year Festival. The Chinatown tradition has swelled into an event with live bands, food, lots of confetti and acrobats and others performing throughout the day on the main stage in Central Plaza. Plus, of course, a parade circles around Hill and Broadway between 1 and 3 p.m. Check out the Culinary Stage for cooking demonstrations and grab a bite at one of the food trucks. Buzzbands L.A.’s Kevin Bronson curated this year’s music lineup, headlined by Lili Haydn. Note that Chinatown streets will be very crowded and the hunt for parking may be intense. Take the Metro.
