Yesterday we were invited out for a preview of the great Lunar New Year celebration at Universal Studios Hollywood.
We got to spend some time in the Universal Plaza in the fabulous sunshine and see all of the great stuff that is out for this years festival.

Time to celebrate the year of the Monkey
Love the Universal Plaza and that they can transform it so many different ways throughout the year. This just looks beautiful.
Banners up for all the different years of the Chinese Zodiac where you can look to see what animal represents you.
I'm the year of the Rabbit, but I'll let you guess what year. ;)
Because it's the year of the Monkey, Curious George is out to greet guests.
Obligatory selfie with George.
Hey, what's that lurking behind us?
Mandarin Megatron is also out again for 2016.
Lots of tasty food offerings are available and were out for us to check out.
We'll be back out at the park on Sunday for a little pre Super Bowl fun so we'll definitely try some of these.
Brief interlude as Gregg tries to get artsy with blossoms and Wizarding World.
Guests are also invited to write messages for the New Year and place them on the plum blossoms.
We saw messages in English, Spanish and of course Mandarin. It's a great tradition.
Be sure you check out the Lunar New Year at Universal Studios, it's definitely not to be missed.
We'll have our normal Universal Studios Update early next week so be sure to check back for that.
