The two-days event that took place on January 11 & 12, 2020 features vendors offering unique gifts and specialty items, food booths with various types of delectable items, amusement rides, and lots of live entertainment. The traditional New Year lion and dragon dancers will kick-off the festival Saturday morning. Various types of entertainment will be featured on both days. A large carnival fun zone was featured in parking lots at the corner of Garvey and Lincoln Avenues. Past Lunar New Year events in Monterey Park have drawn crowds estimated at 50,000 to 100,000 visitors coming from all over the Southern California area. This is a great attraction for all people and also a great opportunity for community outreach.
