Lunar New Year

Happy Lunar New Year! It's the Year of the Rooster!


KuboTwoStrings_edited.jpgThank you for coming out to celebrate El Cerrito’s first Lunar New Year Celebration on January 28th, 2017! We hope everyone had a wonderful time! The Economic Development Committee would like to extend a special thank you to Rialto Cinemas Cerrito, the El Cerrito Historical Society and this year's participating businesses for helping us to make this event a success!

This event featured a free showing of the family-friendly film, Kubo and the Two Strings, at Rialto Cinemas Cerrito, followed by a Lion Dance in front of the theater to celebrate the New Year. The event also showcased the history of Asian Americans in El Cerrito with a special El Cerrito Historical Society photography display and featured business specials along the Theater Block (on San Pablo Avenue between Central Ave & Fairmount Ave).
