2020 is the year of the pig on the Chinese calendar and the annual dragon parade to celebrate its beginning is coming up on February 9th in Orlando, FL.
About The Event
Lunar New Year is the most celebrated holiday in East Asia. Although Chinese New Year is not an official holiday in Western countries, many of the Asian organizations in America hold large celebrations and parades to share its spring festivity. Cities like Sydney, London, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco have held many successful Lunar New Year Parades that attract thousands of attendees each year.
The Year of the Pig marks the 8th annual Central Florida Dragon Parade Lunar New Year Festival held in Orlando, Florida. This event has received overwhelming response from local and distant communities alike. Again this year, Asia Trend Magazine is partnering with Mills 50 (an Orlando Main Street District), R.E.A.C.H. (Recognizing Educating Asian Cultural Heritage) and Y.E.S.S. (Youth Enrichment and Senior Services) to host the Dragon Parade Lunar New Year Festival on Sunday, February 17 from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at 728 N. Thornton Ave., Orlando, FL 32803.
