Chinese New Year Parade 2011

In desperate need of some faux spring outdoor happiness time, I took advantage of yesterday's balmy (40+ degree, woohoo!) sunshine-filled day to walk to Chinatown for the Lunar New Year parade. As it's always colorful and festive, I thought I'd share a few of my snaps...

Bucket o' lanterns.

Next year, I'm totally going to watch the parade from the bridge. Why have I never thought of that?

East Broadway + confetti = the best the street has looked in ages.

Hawking haw candy.

Do you think the city suspends alternate-side parking rules for confetti emergencies?

Parade aftermath: Empty confetti cannons, silly string cans, and snack bags...
