Kearny Mesa Lunar New Year Festival, Jan 27-29

Happy Chinese New Year

By Katherine Sweetman

From the website:
The Kearny Mesa Lunar New Year Festival 2012 @ SEARS is a 3-day cultural and charitable community event whose mission is to promote the Asian cultural heritage during an important traditional holiday.

The Lunar New Year is celebrated in many Asian communities, particularly those whose countries and territories have significant Chinese populations, such as Mainland China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Tibet, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and also in Chinatowns elsewhere. Chinese New Year is considered a major holiday for the Chinese and has had influence on the new year celebrations of its geographic neighbors, as well as cultures with whom the Chinese have had extensive interaction. These include Koreans (Seollal), and Bhutanese (Losar), Mongolians (Tsagaan Sar), Vietnamese (Tết), and the Japanese before 1873 (Oshogatsu).

Sears Parking Lot— great place to throw a party. And although I’m uncertain if I gained any insight into Asian cultural heritage, I did enjoy myself.

Asian food: Check. (cheap, good)

Very yummy fruit that’s (seemingly) hard to get in San Diego (in my world) + sugar cane juice and 2$ Coconuts!

And I talkin’ really good Coconut — not like the ones I always end up buying at the store.

Rides: Check. (cheap, scary, dizzy, glad to be alive, but fun). A lighter traveling at 75mph flew off The Kamikaze and missed us by a few inches. This one’s safe. Tested and survived.

Games: Check.

Entertainment: … huh? OK Yes.

Admission: $5 Adult — worth it.

Overall: Strange and wonderful way to spend an evening. Go this weekend before it’s too late — ends Sunday.

HEADS UP: There’s no beer garden, but there is a very well stocked liquor store across the street, Mesa Liquor & Wine on Convoy. Go there first.
