New York City’s Chinese New Year Parade in Photos

Welcome to the Year of the Rabbit! Yesterday, thousands of onlookers gathered in Chinatown to celebrate the 12th annual Lunar New Year parade. The festivities included floats, costumes, musicians, dancers, and plenty of good ol’ Chinese-American times. If you couldn’t attend the event because you were too busy preparing your infamous nacho dip or applying your decorative face paint for last night’s Super Bowl, take a look at what you missed.
