2020 NYC Chinese Lunar New Year Parade Goes On Through the Streets of Chinatown

2020 NYC Chinese Lunar New Year Parade Goes On Through the Streets of Chinatown

This year’s Lunar New Year Parade marched through the winding streets of Manhattan’s Chinatown on February 9, 2020.

Just prior to the parade’s beginning local leaders held a press conference of sorts on the main stage at Hester and Mott Street. Present, amongst others, NY Senator Chuck Schumer and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The Mayor recognized Steven Ting, organizer of this 21st Annual Lunar New Year parade and festival and proclaimed the day in his name.

The parade, with perhaps one of New York City’s most interesting procession routes, was welcomed by thousands of spectators on this cold winter’s day. On the bright side, the sun was shining brightly enough to add warmth to an already festive occasion.

Lion and Dragon dancers pranced through the narrow streets along with floats, marchers, performers and local dignitaries. Present as well were members of the NY Police Department and the NY Fire Department.

Interestingly enough, there was nary a single soul to be found with a mask on. As many know, recent concerns over the Coronavirus have some folks on edge.
