This will be the sixth year for the parade, which winds it's way through both Chinatown and Little Italy. It's like getting to see two parades for the price of none, with a little learning mixed in. Organizers claim that this parade is the second largest in NYC, behind the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. It features Asian and Italian singers, floats, and dragon dancers.
