Unfriendly spooks should steer clear of Sara D. Roosevelt Park on the first day of the New Year, when the Better Chinatown Society lights 500,000 firecrackers to welcome the Year of the Goat and ward off evil spirits. In addition to the pyrotechnics, there will be lion dances and decorations giveaways, plus craft vendors and food booths where you can get your fill of traditional delicacies. (It’s said that the more dumplings you eat at the celebration, the more money you’ll make that year.) Grand St at Forsyth St; visit betterchinatown.com for details.
