There's plenty to see and do (and eat). The martial arts demonstrations are always impressive, as are all the various dance performances, including the traditional lion and dragon dance. There's also a brief fireworks show as a finale to Saturday night and firecrackers on Sunday to ward off evil spirits.

Another cool aspect to the festival is its inclusiveness. It's not just a celebration of Chinese culture and the Chinese New Year. Aspects of Korean, Japanese, and Hawaiian cultures are also celebrated.

And finally, according to the Chinese Calendar:

2009 - Year of the Ox
2010 - Year of the Tiger
