On February 16, the City of San Gabriel hosted its fifth annual Lunar New Year Festival with a roster featuring traditional and contemporary artists, singers, crafts, food and performers. With eclectic programming throughout the day, the festival attracted emerging talent in our first ever Rising Stars Talent Competition, local artisans in our chalk contest and several contemporary acts such as Katherine Ho, Cheryl K, Ellen & Brian and Run River North.
Food lovers could also sample a variety of dishes, including Chinese pancakes, dumplings, twister potatoes, squid, corn, kimchi, steamed buns and much, much more from a variety of food trucks and food stands.
We’d like to thank our sponsors, which include EDI Media, the Hilton Los Angeles/San Gabriel, Athens, Tawa Supermarkets, Southern California Edison, the Pasadena Star News, Rose Hills, Citrus Pest & Disease Prevention, the San Gabriel Valley Medical Center, Southern California Gas, the Los Angeles Rams and Citizens Business Bank for their continued support.
