Time Out says

A day before Chinatown celebrates the Lunar New Year, the party kicks off in Uptown at the annual Argyle Street parade. Alderman Harry Osterman and Argyle Street business help organize the event, which marks the arrival of the Year of the Rat. Floats, bands and lion dancers will begin the procession at Argyle Street and Winthrop Avenue, heading east along on Argyle Street, south along Sheridan Road, west along Ainslie Street and north along Broadway. Before and after the parade, families can stop by the Latin School of Chicago, the Bezazian Branch of the Chicago Public Library or Axis Lab to take part in activities.
