Lunar New Year 2007

I headed off with my family on Sunday, February 18th to the Lunar New Year Festival in Pasadena (literally across from the Del Mar Gold Line station). We had fun times playing games to win prizes, looking at the arts and crafts, enjoying the performances by cultural artists of different Asian backgrounds. There were plenty of events for the kids to enjoy including pictures with Ronald McDonald at the McDonald's booth and coloring activities. Even the teen to twenty-something had a line-up of fresh bands making their mark in America after sold-out performances in the Phillipines and Japan. My sister and I took pictures with South Border of the Phillipines and Supe of Japan. The following is a slideshow of my flickr pictures from the event:
