Many brave souls braved the rain to attend the biggest and best Chinese New Year parade in Paris, that is, in the 13th arrondissement, on Sunday February 18, 2024. A festive event, with dragon and lion dances and traditional costumes, to start the New Year in the traditional way.

While this year's Lunar New Year took place on Saturday February 10, the festivities can continue for several weeks. So it was not on the big day, but the following week that Paris's benchmark Chinatown celebrated the New Year, much to our delight.

The 13th arrondissement's Chinese New Year parade took place on Sunday February 18, between avenue de Choisy, porte de Choisy and avenue d'Ivry. The parade set off at around 2.30pm for a most joyful and lively route.

The route :

  • Departure from 44, avenue d'Ivry
  • Rue de Tolbiac
  • Avenue de Choisy
  • Boulevard Masséna
  • Return to avenue d'Ivry

The many associations parading around in traditional costumes and superb make-up were there for all to see. In spite of the cold, we let ourselves be carried away by the sound of cymbals and drums in a joyful and good-humored atmosphere.
