Tonight is Chinese New Year's Eve, and Los Angeles' thriving Chinese community is preparing to usher in the Year of the Tiger tomorrow with a week's worth of activities, many of which everyone can take part in. Things get underway tonight at 11 p.m. with a Midnight Temple Ceremony at the Chuan Thien Hau (Cam Au) Temple [map] in Chinatown. Celebrations get really exciting a week from today with the annual New Year's Parade & Festival.

In the meantime, we wanted to celebrate Chinatown by sharing some our favorite shots from the LAist Featured Photos pool to help get us all in the mood for the Year of the Tiger.

Gung hay fat choy!
