CNY: Parade Part I

The Chinese New Year Parade is probably one of my favourite events to look forward to on the CNY festivity calendar. Colourful costumes, cute kids and the adrenalin-inducing lion dance!




This year's mascot for the Year of the Rooster.
--Where do giant inflatable animals like these end up?


The 15-metre-long dragon took off down the street at such a bolt that
this is my only shot of it... obscured by mad-keen photographers
desperately sprinting in an attempt to try and get ahead of it!

    Wow. You were at the start of the parade! Good on ya! I managed to catch glimpse of the dragon at the entertainment centre after the parade has ended. ;-)

    Oops. I thought you were opposite Woolworths metro. :p Turned out you were at George St cinema?

    Hi cherryripe - You'll just have to stay in Sydney until next year's! :P

    Hi pinkcocoa - We mingled outside the Town Hall as the parade participants assembled. However we figured it was better to actually take photos further down.

    I brazenly set up camp on the road, trying to pass myself off as Press. Haha, yeah right, with my itty-bitty camera! I got much better shots though! :)
