11th Annual Chinese Lunar New Year Celebration
ABA Nights at the Opera
Almost 500 people came out to ring in the year of the monkey at the 10th Annual Lunar New Year Celebration hosted by China Camp/Fat City Steakhouse. Guests enjoyed the Lucky Lion dance performance, a spectacular firecrackers show and put on their best poker faces for funny money gambling in the "casino tent." Attendance this year was greater than ever with numerous dignitaries present.
