Happy Lunar New Year, L.A.!

107th%20Golden%20Dragon%20Parade.jpgIt’s Chinese New Year 2006 – Lunar New Year of the Dog 4703-4704 – and it’s the year of the Hot Dog! Don’t believe me? Check out this out from ChineseAstrologyOnline.com – 2006:

Year 2006 is a Chinese Red Fire Dog Year. Because Fire is equivalent to color Red in the Five-Element system, Year 2006 is also called Red Dog year. Also, since Fire is hot, we even can say 2006 is the year of Hot Dog.

You’re likely to Chinese New Year festivities starting up in Asian communities like San Gabriel, Monterey Park, Alhambra as well as Little Saigon (OC) and other places, but in Los Angeles, the longest-running celebration will be the one in Chinatown.

The 107th Golden Dragon Parade will also feature a Mah Jong Tournament (Hong Kong style rules) and an Import Car Show.
