I've lived in New York City my whole life and I had never been to the Chinese new year parade that is done in Chinatown. The parade took place on February 21,2010. With my husband and son being martial arts fanatics we decided to go and see if there would be Kung Fu demonstrations.
The famous question that goes with kids having to wait outside in the cold... Is it starting already? I'm cold....
Needless to say it was a blast. We plan to make this a tradition and go every year : )
Everyone should go at least one time the atmosphere is wonderful. Everybody goes around popping firecrackers and throwing confetti.
While we were walking around after the parade we found this little store which read "Fried Dumpling" and being us with our new fondness for dumplings we just had to try them and who can beat 10 for $2.00. Wow well worth the price if you are ever around chinatown be sure to try these delicious dumplings : )
Hope everyone has a terrific year of the tiger.
