The Tet Parade is a grandiose event that has celebrated the Lunar New Year in Little Saigon for over two decades. Admission is free to the public.
Every year Vietnamese communities across the globe tune in to watch the event broadcasted by local TV stations and social media platforms. The Tet Parade features floats, marching bands, lion dances, color guards, veterans and youth organizations, martial arts, multi-cultural attires, elected officials, scout organizations, community organizations, and an array of local and international businesses.
