146. D is for Dragon and also for Lion Dancers

2011 Chinese New Year Parade in Vancouver, BC

 Balloon dragon

Dragon in a box

Lion Dancers

Here are my favourite scenes of the parade: Junior lion dancers and a cop.



















Man, I'm hot, this lion's head is heavy

They appear to be tangled in the lion's tail

Lion head is back on.  Help is at hand.

He sorts them out
And they prance away!

Did you enjoy this? 

Here are more dancers at the parade.

First time at your blog, and first time on ABC. Lovely pictures, and the story told in pix with the young kids and the police officer, so great. Takes me back to my NYC days, where all cultures were celebrated with gusto!
