The Dragon parade is a special part of the Chinese New Year. The Chinese dragon is a most sacred animal and was the emblem of the Chinese emperors.
Once each year, the dragon leads a parade to wish everyone peace, prosperity, and good luck. The dragon which might stretch a hundred feet long, is typically
made of silk, paper, and bamboo.
