It was a coincident that i saw this moment of chinese new year’s parade held in brooklyn at sunday evening.  I went to Brooklyn for visiting my family at 8th AVE, but due to the lunar Chinese new year parade, the whole 8th ave was closed, no cars are allowed to drive in, however, since i heard the music  that make me curiouse to see what was happened and why the street are blocked by the police  cars. while i was looking for a way out, i accidently made my turn into a block  that ‘s been closed to the parade, so i double parked my care and also blocking someone’s drive way just to see what was going on right there.   When I went there, they parade are almost done, but still crowed. I asked the person who standing next to me about what happened. Because I have no idea what was going on! He told me that the parade was sponsored by Brooklyn Chinese American association, they offering free snacks and gifts for the neighborhoods. Which the street are closed, so you can just freely walking on the street without worry about the cars. Even thought, I didn’t get the chance see the whole parade, but, at least, I didn’t miss the lion dance and martial art performance, it was great, and fabulous.   It was my first time ever, but I do enjoy moment when the paper fireworks  are falling down the air, the kids  are running on the street with with thier ballons on thier hands. and the street are messed by the  party poppers and party sprays. but everybody are happy in the moment wich that includes me, too.
