Photos: Lunar New Year Parade in Chinatown

Hundreds lined the streets along Wentworth and Cermak on Sunday for Chicago’s annual Lunar New Year Parade to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The parade featured colorful costumes, lion dances, floats, several high school marching bands from across the Chicagoland area, and plenty of political candidates for both mayor and 25th Ward alderman. The Chinese New Year began on February 5th, celebrating the Year of the Pig.
