Gung Hay Fat Choy! Yippee! It's the Year of the Dog! Our police force started a Lion Dance team, and debuted at our Chinese New Year parade today, and our mayor handed out loads of red envelopes.

Lion Dancing is damn cool; here's some competition footage.

  • Your post had me thinking I'd missed the local Golden Dragon parade, yet again. But no, fortunately it's not until next weekend. Happy Year of the Dog to everyone!

  • damn, that should be the local Golden Dragon parade
  • Yay! Gots my red envelope today and everything. Happy New year!
  • Back when I worked in the food service industry, always attended the New Year's celebrations at the nearby area full of chinese restaurants. Good memories; the dragons, the firecrackers, the beautiful dancers. And honey duck. Mmmh.
