Even after the City of Alhambra postponed its Lunar New Year festival citing possible low turnout due to coronavirus fears, the San Gabriel Lunar New Year Festival 2020 went on Saturday as scheduled. Attendees were dressed up, in good spirits and few masks to ward off germs were seen.

The all-day event began at 11:00 a.m. with a Lion Dance, followed by the opening ceremony and Dragon Dance. The festival stage was set up in front of the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. Performances included traditional Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese dancers, Taiko drummers.  Headliner musician AJ Rafael performed in the evening.

Here are some photos of the event, including participants of the chalk art competition working on their entries.
