Kung Hei Fat Choi - Chinese New Year (Year of the Dog)
Thanks to Suzanne from Take Better Pictures in Boston, we now know the date is February February 25th. This will be the year of the Dog. On the parade date, from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Boston's Chinatown will host a festive parade, and it doesn't get much better than this!! Street photography-wise, that is. The last time we visited this event, it was the Year of the Lion, and local kung fu groups performed the Lion Dance throughout Chinatown's streets. The "lion" visited each restaurant, where the restaurant owner came to the door to feed it, the lion bowing in gratitude and then performing a special dance, accompanied by clashing cymbals, drums, gongs, and firecrackers to scare away evil spirits. My plan this year: arrive, shoot, and eat. Anyone carpooling might meet at the parking lot across from the Ioka Theater at 9 a.m.; you should plan to leave Exeter at 9:15. The train leaves Exeter at 9:39 and gets into Boston at 10:50. The return train leaves North Station at 7:35PM. heck the Amtrak Downeaster train schedule in case of last-minute changes, and book your ticket as soon as a definite date is set. My thoughts for the day's schedule: shoot from 11 - 2/2:30; find a great place to eat (ideas?) and be back in Exeter around 6:30PM or so.
