The Year of the Dog is coming to Universal Studios Hollywood, as the Southern California theme park prepares to celebrate the popular East Asian holiday Lunar New Year once again.

Decorative red Chinese Lanterns will adorn Universal Plaza alongside gorgeous plum blossom trees and the all-new Jade Palace Performance Stage, which will play home to exciting exhibitions such as the Dragon Warrior Training Show and DreamWorks drawing technique demonstratons. Mr. Ping’s Noodle Shop from “Kung Fu Panda” will also come to life, serving up authentic Asian fare for guests to enjoy.

And of course, Universal’s Lunar New Year celebration would not be complete without character meet-and-greets from “Kung Fu Panda” characters Po and Tigress, plus the return of Mandarin-speaking Megatron from “Transformers” and the debut of the “Despicable Me” Minions in traditional Lunar Year Year garb! And watch out for an appearance from Japanese icon Hello Kitty elsewhere in the park as well.

The Lunar New Year celebration (including with theme park admission) runs from Saturday, February 10 through Sunday, February 25 at Universal Studios Hollywood in Los Angeles, California. Be sure to visit the park’s official website for more information and advance ticketing resources.
