Flushing’s Lunar New Year Parade, honoring the Year of the Horse, will be held Saturday beginning at 11 a.m.

Marchers will gather on Union Street and continue to Sanford Avenue, Main Street and 39th Avenue for the Chinese contingent and 37th Avenue for the Korean group.

The two groups have to split up at the end because of their large sizes. There will be floats, marching bands, Korean drummers, Chinese dragons and lions, fan dancers and elected officials participating.

Following the parade, there will be fireworks outside Queens Crossing, on the corner of Main Street and 39th Avenue. That will be followed by cultural programs at 1 p.m. on the second floor of the building as well as arts and crafts.

Also on Saturday, the Queens Botanical Garden, 43-50 Main St., will host its annual Lunar New Year event from 1 to 4 p.m. There will be a children’s workshop to construct peat pot horses for a $2 fee and an herbal tea workshop for adults for $5. The New York Chinese Chorus will perform.

Welcome to the discussion.
