2013 is the Year of the Snake.

When it comes to decision-making, Snakes are extremely analytical and as a result, they don’t jump into situations. They are effective at getting the things they want.

The festival will be held on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Its located on five blocks on Garvey Avenue in downtown Monterey Park, between Garfield and Alhambra avenues.
