L.A. Chinatown Firecracker
February 18 @ 8:00 am - February 19 @ 12:00 pm$28 – $60
With its next Lunar New Year run, walk, bike, and dog walk activities hosted over the weekend of February 18–19 at the iconic Los Angeles Chinatown Plaza, the L.A. Chinatown Firecracker will celebrate 45 years with a bang.
One of the largest and oldest running races in the United States, the L.A. Chinatown Firecracker is the spot to be when it comes to celebrating the year of the rabbit. Being said, the Firecracker L.A. Year of the Rabbit Chinatown festivities are already accepting registrations, and participants can choose to take part in-person or virtually. Each registered participant will get a commemorative 2023 Firecracker race bib, a limited-edition t-shirt, a goody bag, an exclusive collectible finisher’s medal, and much more.
Additionally, participants and their guests may take part in the Lunar New Year Celebration in the heart of historic Chinatown, which will feature a lion dance performance and the lighting of 100,000 firecrackers as part of the customary opening ceremony. Also, in addition to booths and exhibitors to browse and shop, the event has a new chalk art festival and Boba Garden this year to make the celebration even more memorable.
Tickets will be available for $28–60, depending on the package chosen.
