The second new moon after the Winter Solstice has arrived, and so begins the year 4709. And while the tiger as moved on, the hare has taken his rightful place at the head of the calendar, bringing with him healing and calmness and a climate for negotiation.

No, it's not the beginning of a bad science-fiction novel. It's the beginning of the Chinese New Year; a time to recommitment to family and friends and for celebration. So, what better way is there to bring in the new year than with an illuminated parade featuring elaborate floats and costumes depicting many aspects of Chinese culture, exploding firecrackers, a queen and her court, and even a 250-foot golden dragon. Be a part of the largest celebration of Asian culture outside of Asia. Xin Nian Kaui Le!
