Lunar New Year Festival 2017

Lunar New Year Festival 2017

How does seven blocks of entertainment, food, family activities and vendors for two days, sound like? If you’re tempted well….just head 7 miles south of Pasadena to the city of Monterey Park this weekend, Jan 28 and 29, as they celebrate the Lunar New Year and arrival of the Year of the Rooster!

The Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year, is the most important holiday in Chinese culture. It’s a 15-day (or in modern times, 5-day) festival for families to be together.

So bring your loved ones and celebrate the festivities which will feature over 50 food booths serving various delicacies such as egg waffles, Taiwanese sausage, noodles and BBQ corn on the cob to mention a few. About 300 vendors will be offering unique gifts and specialty items. Kids and adults can also enjoy the amusement rides and lots of live entertainment.
