5th Annual East Meets West Christmas Parade


We were invited to participate in the 5th Annual East Meets West Christmas Parade that winds through both Little Italy and Chinatown. Being neighbors about a hundred years helps build a pretty strong bond. This year's parade was bigger than ever and quite colorful! The parade had a little bit of everything! There were classic cars, Italian singers, Chinese lions and Santa Clause all parading along! It's great seeing the two communities celebrating together! Marching a few steps ahead of us was the American Legion, Lt. B.R. Kimlau Post 1291. It's always a humbling honor to hear their boots march to our street beat. It was a also pretty neat to have Council Member Margaret Chin and New York City Comptroller John Liu take photos with us!
