2014 Chinese New Year January 30, 2014

The Chinese New Year is tomorrow. And both, students, and teachers at PC TECH will be exploring Chinatown this Friday, January 31st, in commemoration of the holiday. The Chinese new year is a very important traditional Chinese holiday. Also, known, in China, as the Spring Festival. Traditionally, the festival was a time to honor deities and ancestors.

This Friday, PC TECH will be at the Firecracker Ceremony & Cultural Festival, also honoring The Chinese New Year. The event will take place in Chinatown’s main streets. In Roosevelt Park (between Grand & Hester Streets), from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm. First, will come the firecracker ceremony, then the parade through the streets; that begin from Roosevelt Park. There will be lion dances, drumming, and dancing! Also, giveaways, and contests; — in addition to the rocket setting, and fire cracking. 😀

The 15th Annual Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade and Festival will take place February 2nd, on a Sunday. It will start at 1:00 pm. This parade usually winds throughout Chinatown down Mott, along East Broadway, up Eldridge Street to Forsyth.

”The spectacle features elaborate floats, marching bands, lion and dragon dances galore, Asian musicians, magicians, acrobats and procession by local organizations. Over 5,000 people are expected to march in the parade, which will start at Mott Street and promenade through practically every street in of Chinatown, finally dispersing at Broome/Forsyth.
