Welcome the Year of the Rat in Chinatown

Don’t bid farewell to your New Years state of celebration just yet! This month brings another opportunity to refresh and restart at the annual Lunar New Year Parade! On February 9, head down to Manhattan’s famous Chinatown for an afternoon of excitement and fun among the local community to welcome in the Year of the Rat. From 1-4 p.m., you and your travel partners can immerse yourself in a part of New York culture only most typically get to see. Be sure to get there early for a prime spot along the parade route—you’ll love having a front-row view of the colorful displays and vibrant performances from various communities within Chinatown. After the parade, the fun continues with a ton of vendors, food, and festive activities for people of all ages to take part in, if even just to ‘ooh’ and ‘awe’ over the displays. We’ll see you there!
