The 14th Annual Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade and Festival traveled from Little Italy through Chinatown on February 17. The festivities marked the start of the Year of the Snake, a Chinese zodiac sign associated with intuition, cunning and introspection. But the celebrations aren't over yet: This Saturday, February 23, take a MOCA-guided walking tour through Chinatown to learn about New Year's customs, such as why you shouldn't sweep the floor. Or use our Chinatown neighborhood guide to find a restaurant where you can eat auspicious dishes, such as fish for abundance, noodles for a long life and dumplings for wealth.
