PS130, Hernando DeSoto School
143 Baxter Street (btw Grand and Hester)
for prep, dumplings, sweet snacks, fruit, refreshments, AND Lion Dance performance!!
Walk around the corner and MARCH in the parade
(Parade runs 1-3PM but we are usually done by 2:30 or before so you can watch the rest!)
Family members and friends are all welcome! If you can only march with us for part of the way, that's okay too! If anyone in your family has a disability that prevents her or him from walking the length of the parade, please let us know and we will provide a (well-decorated!) cargo bike to sit in.
This year FCCNY will be sporting 50 actual-size Roosters and participants will have the opportunity to make their own banners while we get ready! We're so excited but we need you!
You can also bring your own Rooster creation if you like! The more the merrier!
As many of you know, this parade draws thousands of people each year and features many community groups, dance troupes, marching bands, seniors playing traditional instruments, drummers, and lion dancers. This is one of the few times that we get to participate with the greater Chinese-American community and what a special feeling it is both for us and for them to celebrate this wonderful event together!
So rug up and please join us in celebrating this Year of the Rooster!
Sunday, February 5th from 11am-3pm!
Parade starts at Mott Street and goes through the main streets of Lower Manhattan/Chinatown (Canal, Chatham Square, East Broadway, Allan, & Grand St.) and ends at the Lower East Side on Grand and Chrystie Streets by Sara Roosevelt Park.
We will be able to return to the school after the parade if needed.
