Chinese New Year Events from New York to British Columbia


NEW YORK (AP) - You don't have to be in Asia to celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Dragon, Jan. 23.

From New York City to Vancouver, there are parades, performances and other events marking the Lunar or Chinese New Year in many North American cities.

In New York City, the Lunar New Year Parade & Festival takes place Jan. 29 in Manhattan's Chinatown, 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event winds through parts of Lower Manhattan, including Little Italy, the Lower East Side and Mott and Canal streets in the heart of Chinatown.

In the city's Flushing, Queens, neighborhood, which is also home to a large Asian population, a parade is scheduled for Feb. 4 kicking off at 11 a.m. Other holiday events include a Lunar New Year "Dance Sampler" with performers from all over Asia, Feb. 4, 2 p.m. at Flushing Town Hall, 137-35 Northern Blvd.
