Come join TAP-Chicago this Saturday as we participate in the annual Double Ten Parade in Chinatown. The Double Ten Parade is an annual event held to commemorate the Wuchang Uprising, a revolt that led to a declaration of independence from the central government by Wuchang and several other provinces in China in 1911, which ultimately led to the Xinhai Revolution in which revolutionary forces overthrew the Qing Dynasty,
Every year, the Chinatown neighborhood and thousands of people from all over the city of Chicago join together to attend and participate in the Double Ten Parade. This year the festivities will include performances by students and other artists, marching bands, floats and other entertainment. In addition, the Double Ten Parade is attended by leaders of the Chinatown community, representatives of associations in the Chinatown community, and other honorable guests and dignitaries.
The Double Ten Parade is organized by the CCBA. The CCBA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and was established in the 1880s in Chicago. The CCBA’s mission is to unite overseas Chinese, promote their welfare, enhance the Sino-American friendship, promulgate Chinese heritages, and conduct community services and charity events.
