15th annual Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade & Festival

It's hard to believe that marching bands, floats and twirling dragon dancers were frolicking about in balmy 49-degree weather yesterday now that today's slushfest is upon us—but they were, and in full force at that, for the 15th Annual Lunar New Year Parade & Festival. New Yorkers ushered in the Year of the Horse with a lively procession celebrating Asian culture that wound its way through Little Italy and Chinatown. Costumed performers danced and pounded on the drums, spectators threw colorful confetti and vendors hawked traditional fare, with dumplings as the order of the day to ensure an auspicious New Year.
