Picture 16Firecrackers will be cracking, dragons will be dancing, and bands will be marching in celebration of the Year of the Tiger. The Chinese New Year marks an important date in the Asian calendar and thus is a cause for some serious festivities. For its 111th year, the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles will host The Golden Dragon Parade. Drawing over 110,000 people, this festival is one of the biggest and most impressive. The plethora of colors that make up the exquisite floats alone is eye candy. Hopefully the innumerable dragons lining the street will help bring good luck for the New Year.

Make sure to get to the parade early to hold your spot.
