title: Lunar New Year Parade
description: On Sunday February 17th, the Lunar New Year Parade returns to the heart of Squirrel Hill! Starting at 11am at Philipps and Murray Avenue, Steel Dragon Kung Fu & Lion Dance will begin the festivities and the new year with a traditional Chinese blessing ritual. Pan-Asian cultural organizations in resplendent costumes and uniforms will showcase their craft as we march up Murray toward Darlington Street. Weaving in and out will be Chinese dragon lines, lion dance teams and Thai Fire-eaters! The award winning Allderdice Marching Band will be keeping us in rhythm. Minadeo K-5 will show us how a young dragon team can rock the line! And Dragonboat teams Pittsburgh Paddlefish and Hearts of Steel share what makes them strong and resilient in our three rivers! The Lunar New Year Parade is free and open to the public!
