The Year of the Snake started off with a bang, as revelers took to the streets to celebrate the Lunar New Year in Chinatown. This year, (4711 in the Chinese lunar calendar) was celebrated with smoke and lights as firecrackers were set off on Sun., Feb. 10, middle. This past weekend, the annual parade shut down streets from Little Italy to Chinatown as gigantic dragons, snakes and other symbols of good luck wound their way Downtown. Colorful confetti showers deluged the crowd and families gathered to watch dancers and acrobats perform, dressed in red for good luck.
