Gung Hay Fat Choy


I captured this image of young dragon dancers at the 2014 Chinese New Year Parade in Vancouver's historical Chinatown. This event marked the beginning of the Year of the Horse in the Chinese lunar calendar. Over 50,000 people attended this year's parade. The Chinatown in Vancouver, British Columbia, is one of the largest and oldest in North America. Its colourful streets and alleyways lined with heritage buildings, restaurants, markets, and shops crammed with traditional Chinese goods make Chinatown one of my favourite places to explore with my camera. You can see more images in my Vancouver Chinatown gallery.
