Boston's annual Chinese New Year Parade winds through the streets of Chinatown, which become largely pedestrian-only during the event.

The parade gives you a great opportunity to see traditional Lion Dances, which are believed to drive away evil spirits and bring good luck. The parade travels on Kneeland Street, Essex Street, Harrison Ave and several smaller side streets. It features colorful lion dancers, drums and cymbals, firecrackers and great food.
