The Faces of China Town

The Year of the Ox is here! Mayor Mufi Hannemann came to China Town to celebrate.

Feel free to feed the animals. (The lions eat dollar bills).
The Lion Dance teams drum in the new year.
Those are not devil horns...they are Ox horns.

Miss China Town 2009 showed up.
Those with Chinese roots, and those who wish they had, marched and displayed their exciting culture.
All gave blessings and wishes for prosperity this year.
The culture is alive and thriving in China Town.

Faces from all different places celebrate the Year of the Ox

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2009 is the Year of the Ox. The Ox, or the Buffalo sign symbolizes prosperity through fortitude and hard work. Those born under the influence of the Ox or Buffalo are fortunate to be stable and persevering. The typical Ox is a tolerant person with strong character. Not many people could equal the resolution and fearlessness that the Ox exhibits when deciding to accomplish a task. Ox people work hard without complaints at work or at home. They know that they will succeed through hard work and sustained efforts, and do not believe in get-rich-quick schemes.
