The 24th annual New Year’s Day Parade and Festival in Chinatown is set to take place on Sunday, Feb. 20, beginning at 1 p.m. on the corner of Hester and Mot Street.
The parade route will run from Moto and Canal to Chatham Square to East Broadway to Manhattan Bridge and end at Eldridge and Forsyth Street towards Grand Street near Sarah D. Roosevelt Park.
