Wordless Wednesday - Lions, dragons and fire crackers galore.

For the past few weeks we have been celebrating Chinese New Year and the last day was on Monday which is called Chap Goh May. The final day of celebrating and welcoming the Luna New Year and the start of the Year of the Dragon... which for our part meant the last day of lion & dragon dances and the ever noisy and super loud fire crackers that go seem to go on through out the night.


We were lucky this time and managed to catch a lion dance that was at the new Japanese restaurant just down the road. A big crowd gathered around to watch the dragon dance before we got there but we to get there in time to watch the lions battle it out and light the fire crackers.



 I don't know how they do it but these dancers can jump and leap through the air and land on such small platforms. I've even seen some lions that swing around on the platforms and make it look so easy.... lots of really fit people out there!!!





The last of those super noisy fire crackers!!! Crazy loud but only once a year.


Want to join in the fun - Wordless Wednesday @ My Little Drummer Boys.
