Thousands of revelers rang in the Year of the Snake on Saturday with dancers, calligraphers and a craft table at the Santa Anita Mall.
This is the first time Westfield has celebrated Chinese New Year. In preparation for Saturday's festival, the mall was decorated with a 600-pound steel dragon hanging from the ceiling over the center court, a pagoda and numerous Chinese lanterns, among other adornments.
Jason Lu attended Saturday's festivities with his wife and infant son.
"We're having a great time," Lu said. "I've never heard of a Chinese New Year at the mall."
