As many as one million fans cheered as the Super Bowl XLVI champions made their way up the Canyon of Heroes in Lower Manhattan for the Super Bowl victory parade on Tuesday, February 7th. NYC Photo News was there to cover all the action.

Eli Manning, joined by coach Tom Coughlin, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other teammates, waved and grinned from the lead float as the victors, friends, and family were showered with at least 30 tons of confetti from buildings lining Broadway. Several local bands, including the NYPD Marching Band joined the procession.

The Department of Sanitation worked hard to keep the discarded paper under control during and after the parade and the NYPD did a terrific job managing the crowds.

The  Lunar New Year parade celebrating the "Year of the Dragon" was held on Saturday, February 4, 2012 in Queens and New York Photo News as there to capture the event.

Although members of Falun Gong (Falan Dafa) were banned from Manhattan's parade the previous week, they were out in full force for the Flushing, Queens event with a large marching band, a float, dancing dragons and a drum corps. Also present was a large contingent from Sinovision, the mainland China news agency.

Flushing is home to one of the largest East Asian populations in New York City rivaling Manhattan's Chinatown. Korean-Americans were also well represented in the parade.
