A Los Angeles tradition for nearly 120 years, the Golden Dragon Parade provides a colorful way to welcome in the Chinese New Year. It features two dozen floats, several marching bands, entertainers, cultural groups, and local dignitaries. Red packets of money (Lai see or Hung bao) and firecrackers are part of the fun too. Spectators can view the parade, which proceeds through L.A.’s Chinatown (from Hill at Ord to Broadway at Cesar Chavez), for free or by buying a ticket for grandstand seating.
