Washington Celebrates the Chinese Year of the Horse (photos)

Jeff Malet

Thousands descended on Chinatown in Washington D.C. on a seasonably warm Sunday Feb 2 to welcome the Chinese Lunar New Year "Year of the Horse" with a parade that featured lion dancers, martial arts demonstrations, musical performances and firecrackers. In this election year, D.C. politicians were in abundance, joining prominent members from the Chinese community. The horse is part of a 12-year-cycle of animals that make up the Chinese zodiac.
