On Sunday, February 17, Chinatown’s streets will be converted into an epic parade route.
This year marks the 20th annual Chinese Lunar New Year Parade. The route starts at Mott & Canal Streets and kicks off at 1 pm. The route will wrap back around and end at Grand Street near the Sara D. Roosevelt Park.
You’ll want to be sure to get there early in order to get the best viewing spot. Take part in the festivities, enjoy the beauty of the costumes and dragons and, since this is the Year of the Pig, after all, indulge in a few extra treats at one of the best Chinese bakeries in the city. Along the parade route will be plenty of vendors and food available for purchase. So head over with some friends or the fam and enjoy the day.
