February 1st will be filled with fire crackers, lion dances, and a marching parade on 8th Avenue. The Year of the Ox, or the year 4707, begins today - January 26th, but the celebrations continue all week.

The Brooklyn Chinese-American Association is sponsoring a New Year's celebration on February 1st on 8th Avenue and 50th Street. The festivities begin at 11 AM with a fire cracker display, a Lion Dance and Kung Fu demonstration, as well as other cultural performances. At 1 PM the Lion Dance and Marching Parade begin. It starts out at 50th Street and continues to 60th Street.

Hopefully the weather will cooperate, and we can all enjoy the fun.
