Chinese New Year’s Parade, NYC
Of all the New York City parades, I have to say the Chinese New Year’s parade is definitely one of my favorites. There is so much to see. And Anthony and I couldn’t have been closer to the action standing right up against the street barricade.
I was amazed at how fast the parade moved with dragons swirling and undulating everywhere you looked. Lots of super cute little kids waving flags, marching or just looking cute. Rabbits, of course. And some older folks from the local senior center hamming it up with their bunny ears.
The woman standing next to me touched just about every dragon and rabbit that marched, hopped and whooshed by. I overheard it’s supposed to be good luck to put your hand in the dragon’s mouth.
Great photos. Thanks for sharing. I feel like I was there.
I wish you had been there with us. We had tons of fun. And a delicious Chinatown lunch afterward.
I’m not much for parades, but you do make this one enticing! Gorgeous photos and layout.
Mary, I just viewed this. Great job – and I love red too!
When I was editing my photos I was noticing how red everything seemed. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised…red is the color for good luck and fortune in Chinese culture.
