We're in for a beautiful week ahead.

If you can, get outside for a walk, a hike or a run and take in all of Arizona's beautiful scenery.

There's a lot of events going on this week.

Monday marks the official Chinese New Year. This year is the year of the Monkey. It almost marks the start of Phoenix Chinese Week. On Friday, head over to Margaret T. Hance Park for the Chinese Culture & Cuisine Festival to see traditional dragon and lion dances, martial arts demonstrations and taste authentic food.

Arizona breweries across the state will participate in Arizona Beer Week, which focuses on celebrating and educating beer drinkers on craft beer. Restaurants and breweries will have specials all week.

If you're looking to get out of town, check out the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show at the Tucson Convention Center. View details on these events and more below.
