Chinatown Celebrates 40 Years of Firecracker Run

Chinatown Celebrates 40 Years of Firecracker Run

The 40th annual Chinatown Firecracker Run took place bright and early in downtown Chinatown on Sunday, Feb. 25. As usual, to kick off the race with a bang, more than 100,000 firecrackers were ignited in unison, creating a flurry of fire and smoke. There also was a dragon dance, the perfect way to start off any race. All photography by Shane Lopes
