LOS ANGELES - Disney's California Adventure Park kicked off celebrations of the Year of the Tiger Friday, featuring a string of Chinese culturally-themed performances, art shows, lantern decorations and Asian-inspired dishes.

Visitors from around the world joined the special celebrations which run from Jan. 21 through Feb. 13, immersed in a festival atmosphere and sharing wishes for good health, luck and prosperity throughout the year ahead.

The 2022 Chinese Lunar New Year falls on Feb 1. It is based on a 12-year Zodiac cycle of characters, with 2022 being the Year of the Tiger.

The colorful Chinese Lunar New Year theme has turned the park into a sea of red and gold -- the Chinese New Year's traditional colors -- and a wonderland of festive Asian holiday cheer.

This year's Lunar New Year celebrations highlighted a new float for China's legendary warrior character Mulan, accompanied by traditional Chinese drummers performing powerful rhythms.
