More Pics From Chinese New Year Celebrations

Lion Dancing 2012. Photo by Florence Eng

Thanks to Florence Eng for sending us these photos from the Lion Dance activities that took place the day before the big parade. She writes: I love the publicity (the float parade on Sunday) receives but the lion dancing on Saturday received zero coverage.  It is a much more family friendly, fun event…We get invited by all the storefronts to come into the stores and “bless” it with good fortune by lion dancing and scaring away the bad spirits.
