“After two years of pandemic cancellations, we are back and we want the public to know it,” a representative said in an email announcing the event. “We take pride in our selection of parade participants and embrace diversity.”

The parade will be filled with diverse groups of participants from lion dancers, cultural groups with colorful banners and costumes, local high school marching bands and more. The parade will finish with a firecracker display on H Street.
