Chinese New Year Parade!

Last Sunday I met up with Bingo and Betty early in the morning, for the Chinese New Year parade in Vancouver's China Town. This is one of my favorite events of the year. It's the most colorful parade I can think of, and I love the dragons and costumes. There's drums and firecrackers going off everywhere.

I've got lots of photos to post, so stay tuned, I'll be adding more soon!







May I try it?












I love the dragons!






Check out the size of the beard on this guy!

Excellent shot 'again!' Mark, and the people we met there, that was a bonus! Kind of funny how that day rolled out.

Yup, there sure was some interesting people there! All part of the fun! That German speaking lady that kept talking to Betty was hilarious! Especially when I told her "Ich spreche nicht Deutsches". I don't think she believed me.

These are great!!! The girls keep making me show them agian and agian, they love the colors.

Ok, now, that guy with the shaggy beard, I am thinking although he had his camoflauge jacket on, he probably didnt blend in very well.

Ok, and now, those guys or girls with the makeup on they are in the same boat as the elephant goose....scarey!!!!!!!!!!!!!
