The Chinese Near Year Parade held in honor of the Lunar New Year marks the biggest annual celebration in Boston’s Chinatown, home to the third largest Chinese community in the U.S.
The parade route winds around Kneeland Street, Essex Street, Harrison Ave, and several smaller side streets.
Most of Chinatown becomes pedestrian-only during the event.
After the parade’s initial procession around the neighborhood, lion dances take place simultaneously in multiple locations, going from business to business up and down all the streets, smaller lanes, and alleys.
Just follow the noise from the drums and firecrackers to find the action. There is no one “best” place to view the parade.
