This Monday marks the beginning of the Lunar New Year, as celebrated in many East Asian cultures. As we reported last week, Universal Studios Hollywood is helping to usher in that celebration by continuing its annual Lunar New Year tradition at Universal Plaza in the park’s Upper Lot area.
On hand for the festivities are Curious George in appropriate attire and a special Mandarin-speaking Megatron from Transformers: the Ride. The plaza is also home to a gorgeous plum blossom arch and customary red Chinese lanterns.
Guests can also participate by hanging their wishes on a wishing tree, or by eating Asian-inspired snacks from the food truck in the plaza. Open through February 14th, it’s a great way to celebrate the Lunar New Year at Universal Studios Hollywood!
