Flushing is home to Queens’ first—and largest—Chinatown neighborhood. As such, the area’s Lunar New Year Parade is a huge draw each year, with vibrant costumes, floats, dancing and traditional Chinese celebrations. Start off with a warm-up reception of coffee and doughnuts at the Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce from 9:30 to 10:30am, and then march over to the parade site at Union Street and 37th Avenue. The parade will begin at approximately 11am.
