Chinese New Year is best recognised for having one of the grandest fireworks displays on earth, which almost everyone in Beijing contributes to. The dates vary every year but it's usually in February and lasts for 15 days. Apart from the fireworks, visitors won't notice too much in the way of celebrations - it's very much a family occasion, but it's well worth visiting a temple fair. The one at the Temple of Earth Park in Beijing is good.
Throughout the city, but especially in temples and parks.
