Lunar New Year Celebrated in Flushing

By Caroline van Alphen

Chinese Lunar Parade Flushing 2016

The Flushing, Queens community celebrated Lunar New Year during a colorful parade on Saturday, February 13th. Single digit temperatures and minus zero wind chills did not stop the participants and thousands of spectators to enjoy the grand festivities and excitement at the start of The Year Of The Monkey. The many months of preparation by the Flushing Asian-American community resulted in spectacular contributions. It truly was a multi-cultural event, uniting young and old from all walks of life, regardless the freezing temperatures.
