Chicago is celebrating the Chinese New Year with lights.

Skaters at the Millennium Park ice rink glided along a surface of reds and blues. It's part of Mayor Emanuel's plan to make the city's Chinese New Year celebration the largest in North America.

Not far away at the Chicago Cultural Center, there was an outdoor light display inspired by Chinese philosophy, art and folklore.

You can see these each night through Sunday.
