T!C New Year's Block Party on Mosco Street
4 – 6:30PM
It’s the biggest day of the year for Manhattan’s Chinatown! To celebrate the New Year, lions from across NYC will be dancing in the street…and so will you at the newsstand at Mosco Street. At 4pm, the Tai Look Lion will bless the newsstand along with Jia Sung’s Tiger Lantern, “Guardian Xianchan.” YiuYiu will bring her special collection of Chinatown vinyls to get us grooving to Canto and Mando pop from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. This is a block party for the whole family.
Mask up and dress for the weather - you won’t want to miss the festivities!
