Like Sydney, L.A. has a large Chinese expat community, with more than a hundred years worth of Chinese New Year traditions of their own. The main event is the Golden Dragon Parade, which runs along North Broadway, L.A.'s Chinatown, and attracts more than a hundred thousand people out to line the route which even more people see it via live telecast. Sine the 80's the parade has added floats and marching bands to its retinue of dancing lions and dragons, to bring it more into line with other large scale American parades.

Celebrities and dignitaries attend and you can book seats in the grandstand if you're intent on not missing a minute, otherwise arrive early to pitch your position.
