Many of our neighbors braved the cold on Sunday to watch cultural performances, lion dancers, firecrackers, and more during the annual Sunset Park Lunar New Year Parade that’s hosted by the Brooklyn Chinese-American Association.

Each year, the popular parade draws revelers from throughout Brooklyn – and beyond – to the festivities on Eighth Avenue, where the procession runs from 50th Street to 61st Street.

Many thanks to neighbor and KensingtonBK author Jole Carliner for these wonderful photos of the event. And if you took any photos of the parade, let us know! You can email us at editor@kensingtonbk.com, and we’ll post them to the blog.
