People in Los Osos celebrate Chinese New Year

The Chinese New Year kicked off on the last day of January, and people in Los Osos are celebrating the 15-day event this weekend.

The Volumes of Pleasure Bookshoppe sponsored the celebration for the 11th year in a row.

It included a traditional Lion Dance, performed by Cal Poly students.

"Lion dance is traditionally performed on all Chinese holidays," Cal Poly Lion Dance Captain Todd Wong. "It just brings good fortune because lions are designed to scare off bad spirits."

This year is the year of the horse.

In Chinese culture, that means a year for unexpected adventures and surprising romance. It's also a good year for travel.
