Chinese New Year-NYC
Floats, musicians, acrobats and giant dragons paraded in the street of Chinatown and ended with a cultural festival in the park.
A beautiful cake weighing about 500lbs by The Cake Boss -Buddy Valastro--depicting two dragons on top of a pagoda was showcased on one of the floats. Slices of cake were given to spectators to try at the end of the parade. It was delicious!
The Dragon is said to be the deliverer of good fortune and a master of authority.
