The top two photos on this page were contributed by Hal Rosenblum who says:
"I have had the pleasure of photographing the gala celebrations that took place on festively decorated Canal, Mott, Mulberry and other adjoining streets in Chinatown. There were large crowds to witness the various events that included introductory speeches, a parade with marching bands and floats and ,of course, the Lion and Dragon Dance Troupes . A good time was had by all."

Below the top two photos are others which were taken on February 1st, 2004 by yours truly throughout Chinatown wherein you could see Lions & Dragons at your every turn.

There were hundreds of participants winding their way through the streets of Chinatown as their Lions made stops in front of shops here and there and performed their dances in hopes of bringing luck and happiness. New Yorkled and NYCPG extends thanks to all who were a part of this days festivities. The Lions themselves were beautifully designed and the acrobatics of the athletic performers was appreciated by all!

The top most photo on this page was taken as a Lion posed for my camera. This troupe was made up of members of the Shaolin Kung-Fu Institute of Hightstown, East Windsor.
The next photo features Yee's Hung-Ga International Kung-Fu Association - Dragon and Lion Dance Team.
'and the following three photos are of the United East Athletics Association (UEAA) who put on quite a show at the corner outside of MoCA (Museum of Chinese in the Americas).
