Lia Chang’s Lens: Photos of Lion Dancers in Los Angeles Chinatown. It is the second day of the Year of the Rabbit and I am in Los Angeles Chinatown for a Chinese New Year feast with my father, my sister Tami and her fiancé Ken. Following the familiar sound of firecrackers, I soon discovered the Wong Tai Sen Lion dance group in the Central Plaza performing the traditional lion dance outside one of the main associations. I tagged along with them to the Golden Dragon Seafood Restaurant, where I captured these images.

I loved celebrating the Year of the Rabbit with my father and sister Tami at The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens, 1151 Oxford Rd. in San Marino on Saturday, where their Chinese New Year Festival kicked off at 11 a.m., with a performance by lion dancers and drummers near the north entrance to the Chinese garden.
