DC CHINATOWN CELEBRATES THE YEAR OF THE RABBIT
The 2023 Annual Chinese Lunar New Year parade is organized by the DC Mayor’s Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs (MOAPIA) in partnership with Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association (CCBA).
SAVE THE DATE: The Year of the Rabbit
The Parade will be on Sunday, January 22nd, 2023 at 2pm
People born in the Year of the Rabbit usually have soft and tender personality traits. They keep a modest attitude and maintain a pleasant relationship to people around. They will not be irritated easily, and they also avoid quarrels as much as possible.
We hope our past participants will be able to join us next year!
