Chinatown Hosts Chinese New Year Festival

HONOLULU (KHNL) - Hundreds gather in Chinatown this weekend to get ready for the lunar New Year.

A lion chases evil spirits away at this early New Year's festival. The United Chinese Coalition hosts the free party, which brings together food vendors, cultural exhibits, feng shui presentations, martial arts displays, Chinese dancing and singing, and Chinese fortune readings.

You've got until tonight at 10 to catch it. Or if you miss it this weekend they'll all be there again next Friday and Saturday.
