TUCSON, Ariz. -- The traditional Dance of the Dragon was on display at the Lee Oriental Supermarket Sunday afternoon.  It's one way Chinese are celebrating their new year. 

Thursday began the year of the Golden Rabbit, which is supposed to be good luck.

"Supposedly the dragon, we bring it in to scare away evil spirits and bring good luck, health and fortune to the families," said Tucson resident Hoang Huynh.

Chinese new year celebrations will end on February 17.
