Happy Chinese New Year’s everybody! Celebrate the year of the snake this Sunday with the annual Lunar New Year Parade & festival in Chinatown.

The 14th annual parade will provide ample entertainment for all ages. Colorful floats, elaborate costumes, and extravagant dance performances will dazzle the eye.

Each year, activities are inspired by the zodiac theme, so hope you like snakes! Streets will be packed with thousands of people in attendance, alongside live music.

Can’t have a festival without amazing food. Vendors will be out and showcasing great authentic cultural dishes that will quench anyone’s appetite just by looking at it.

The parade starts at 1 pm this Sunday. Parade starts in Little Italy and goes throughout Lower Chinatown. Cultural festival & booths will be located in Sara Roosevelt Park (Canal & Forsyth St.).
