9th Annual Dragon Parade Lunar New Year 2020
Feb 9, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Dragon Parade Lunar New Year Festival in Orlando to celebrate the Year of the Rat on February 9, 2020
Lunar New Year is the most celebrated holiday in East Asia. Although Chinese New Year is not an official holiday in Western countries, many of the Asian organizations in America hold large celebrations and parades to share its spring festivity. Cities like Sydney, London, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco have held many successful Lunar New Year Parades that attract thousands of attendees each year.
The Year of the Rat marks the 9th annual Central Florida Dragon Parade Lunar New Year held in Orlando, Florida. This event has received an overwhelming response from local and distant communities alike. Again this year, Asia Trend is partnering with Mills 50 (an Orlando Main Street District), R.E.A.C.H. (Recognizing Educating Asian Cultural Heritage) and Y.E.S.S. (Youth Enrichment and Senior Services) to host the Dragon Parade Lunar New Year Festival on Sunday, February 9 from 11:00am to 12:30pm at 728 N. Thornton Ave., Orlando, FL 32803.
The Dragon Parade starts at the corner of N Thornton Ave and Oregon St and will end at N. Thornton Ave and Colonial Drive. The Dragon Parade, which precedes the Festival, is led by the City of Orlando and Orange County officials together with representatives of numerous Asian organizations. In 2019 over 8,500 patrons attended the event.
We would like to invite you or your organization to be part of this community event by becoming a sponsor, or a participant. Join businesses like Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC), Maaswinkel Law P.A., and Universal Orlando Resort and become event sponsors.
