My inaptitude for being able to read a calendar resulted in a trip to Chinatown two Sundays in a row - the first Sunday, Feb 14th, happened to be the Firecracker Ceremony where the use of over 600,000 firecrackers warded off the evil spirits for the year. It was way too crowded (see below) to get any good pictures or really a good view period. Stephen & I just listened to the firecrackers ward those spirits away.
Here are pics from the parade the following Sunday:
