Lunar New Year in Reseda


The Year of the Rooster crows in on January 28th, and there are many ways to celebrate near Canoga Park. Disneyland is decked out in full Chinese New Year décor and features authentic performers throughout the park on the big day. Take a stroll along Main Street U.S.A., take in the incredible decorations, and see your favorite characters in unique costumes they only showcase once a year.

You’ll be guided to a temple, Chinese art galleries, a series of antique shops and herbal stores, all in the heart of the district. Over two and a half hours on the first Saturday of every month, you’ll get a sneak peek into the real Chinatown, called one of the best destinations by Los Angeles Magazine.
