Each year, about 30 minutes from the Ko Olina Beach Villas, Chinatown opens its doors and streets to host a Chinese New Year spectacular. Enjoy a parade featuring the traditional lion and dragon dance, Kung Fu exhibitions, music performances, and countless ethnic dishes made especially for the occasion.
The Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii hosts the event at Chinatown Cultural Plaza (100 N. Beretania Street) on Friday, January 20 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday, January 21 from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
This year, Chinese New Year is on Jan. 28, and 2017 is the year of the Rooster.
