Around five-thousand people marched through the streets of Chinatown yesterday in celebration of the Year of the Rabbit. It was a beautiful day for Manhattan’s Chinese Lunar New Year Parade. We walked with the lion dancers, marching bands and floats as they made their way down Mott Street. Lots of photos after the jump!

Thanks to photographer Stephen Spera for this photo from yesterday’s festivities at the Chinese New Year Parade. We’ll have some great scenes from the parade later today. The Year of the Rabbit started off with some much needed sunshine; look for more of that this morning before it turns cloudy this afternoon – with a high in the low 40’s. There’s a chance of rain showers this evening. Enjoy your Monday!
