Every year Chinatown plays host to an enormous Lunar New Year celebration. Families turn out to enjoy the Golden Dragon Parade plus an array of special good-luck foods and flag-waving. This year's 119th annual parade was held on Saturday, Feb. 17. The day of the Lunar New Year is the most celebrated holiday for nearly 1.5 million people of Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese descent in Southern California.
