NYC – 2017 – Chinese New Year – Firecrackers – More

Chinese New Year’s Day Firecracker Festival

I got a chance to visit Chinatown during the first day of the Lunar New Year, January 28. this Firecracker Ceremony and Cultural Festival, started a week-long celebration of performances, vendors, and giveaways and on this day, plenty of  firecrackers.


Thousands of these are sold, almost everyone of them is used on the streets.

This Chinatown  party featured was full of people and had all sorts of  food and festivities for all ages. It was an enjoyable day to welcome in  the Year of the Rooster. During this lively affair, hundreds of thousands of the sparkly explosives are set off to ward off bad spirits for 2017. Here are some highlights.
