15th New Year Chinese New Year Firecracker Ceremony & Cultural Festival in Chinatown, NYC

It is tradition to begin the Lunar New Year by setting off firecrackers at midnight. And, since Chinatown in NYC inhabits approximately 100,000 people and is one of the largest enclaves outside of Asia, you know they are pretty serious about traditions! However, it is illegal to light firecrackers in NYC! So, there is a formal ceremony that is approved for the setting off of rockets and firecrackers along with lion dances, drumming, dancing and a parade through the streets. *FREE*

January 31, 2014 at 11am.

Sara Roosevelt Park runs between Canal and East Houston between Grand and Forsyth St.

14th Annual Lunar New Year Celebration

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF TIME TO 6:00PM

Ring in the Year of the Horse at IHP! Featuring dance performances from the Chinese community in Philadelphia, a sampling of traditional Chinese food, and at the end of the evening, and a time-honored lion dance to welcome the coming year once and for all. Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year, is a centuries old, important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated all around the world. Within China, regional customs and traditions concerning the celebration of the Chinese New Year vary widely. Often, the evening preceding New Year’s Day is an occasion for Chinese families to gather together to their annual reunion dinner. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated with red paper cut-outs with popular themes of good-fortune or happiness, wealth, and longevity. Other activities include lighting firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes. Chinese tradition states that the Year of the Horse is optimistic, with a belief that good fortune will soon be on the way with plenty of supportive friends, so please join together and celebrate with your friends at International House!
