Billions of people around the world marked the Lunar New Year last month. Sira was able to celebrate locally by taking part in the 1st annual Greater Boston Lunar New Year Rolling Parade. Our team members decorated our company vehicle with traditional celebratory colors and imagery to mark the occasion.

This Lunar New Year is the Year of the Ox, which symbolizes fortune, happiness and health. As our community recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic these are all symbols we hope our community experiences this year.
Together with other local organizations, officials and police departments from across Greater Boston, we were able to experience the joy of this holiday and pay tribute to the traditions of one of the wonderful groups of people that call Massachusetts home.

he event was organized by the Chinese American Citizens Alliance Boston, the Chinese American Heritage Foundation and Chung Wah Academy of New England. The parade started in Boston’s Chinatown neighborhood and proceeded past Boston City Hall and the Massachusetts State House before rolling to cities and towns including: Brookline, Cambridge, Malden, Quincy and Somerville. The Parade Marshall was the Honorable Seaman First Class Tony Moy of the U.S. Navy. Veteran Moy is a Chinese American World War II Veteran.
The event was an overwhelming success and the organizers are planning to make the rolling parade an annual event. We can’t wait for next year!
