New Year's at Hsi Lai Temple

Outdoor Activities on Chinese New Year's Day Feb. 1, 2003

In 2003, I was working at Hsi Lai Temple and took these photos on New Year's Day.  The Sheriff's Department estimated the crowd that day at between 20,000 and 30,000 people--and remember, this is Southern California!

You can also see pictures of indoor activities in 2003 and 2004.
