“Happy New Year” was heard throughout the streets of Downtown Monterey Park last weekend at the city’s Lunar New Year Festival, which included vendors, food, entertainment and carnival rides.

Residents bought decorations and Chinese red envelopes to hand out as gifts. Others hung their wishes on a Chinese Wishing Tree hoping to have their wishes come true during the Year of the Snake.

The Year of the Snake will officially begin on Sunday, Feb. 10.
