Picture 25It’s the year of Tiger in 2010, which means that it’s going to be fiery year. Start it of with the New Year’s Day Firecracker Ceremony and Cultural Festival- one of the few days a year you can legally set off firecrackers and rockets in Manhattan. Along with the amazing explosions will be lion dances, drumming, and giveaways/contests of traditional Chinese New Year items. After the Firecracker Ceremony, make sure to join in on the festival parade through the streets of Chinatown.
