Chinatown was the place to be Friday and Saturday as events, streets fairs and open houses celebrating Chinese New Year, welcoming the Year of the Pig. Click here for a slideshow of Saturday's festivities.
Events were organized by Chinese Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii, Chinatown Merchants Association and Honolulu Chinese Jaycees. In PBN's new Book of Lists, the Chinese Chamber of Commerce on Hawaii was the Islands' sixth largest chamber, with 396 members.
Is it the Year of the Pig, or the Boar? Depends on where you're going to celebrate at upcoming events this month. Mililani Shopping Center is going with Year of the Pig this Friday; while Ala Moana Center simply says Chinese New Year for its Feb. 7 - 9 events, though its marketing features a tuskless pig; and International Marketplace is going with Boar for events on Feb. 10 at International Marketplace.
