NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- Happy Year of the Rabbit from ABC 7 New York!

WABC is a proud sponsor of the 25th Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade and Festival, and we streamed it live on our ABC 7 New York apps Sunday afternoon!

Participants stepped off from Mott and Canal streets and headed past WABC's live camera position to Chatham Square then along East Broadway toward the Manhattan Bridge.

The parade made its way to Eldridge and Forsyth streets and wrapped up on Grand Street next to Sara D. Roosevelt Park.

That's where Chinatown's Lunar New Year festivities first kicked off just a few weeks ago with the 25th annual New Year Firecracker Ceremony and Cultural Festival.
