Paris is one of many cities around the globe that's historically had a large Chinese community, and will have a grand parade, as will San Francisco, Queens, and Sydney .... Not to mention the parades and fireworks mega-extravaganzas in China and Hong Kong.

In 2013, we're welcoming in the Year of the Snake. The date itself is Monday February 10 but festivities are spread over several weeks. Many parades take place on the weekends of February 9th and 16th.

If your family's visiting New York, or D.C., or L.A., or another celebrating city on the right date, you can enjoy colorful (free) festivities. See more about Chinese New Year Celebrations in 2012, and see photos from a past Chinese New Year Parade.
