Students, teachers and parents at Santa Ynez Valley Charter School rang in Lunar New Year on Feb. 1 with special guests, including a colorful, dancing lion, as part of an all-school commitment to learn and celebrate the traditions and culture of other countries and people.

The event marked the school's ninth year celebrating the annual event.

Lunar New Year is observed annually by several East Asian countries with grand festivals that typically feature a traditional lion dance and various celebratory activities.
