Dragon Dance

I took a walk this weekend in Chinatown and saw lots of dragons for the end of the lunar new year. It is common for the dragons and lions to visit each store to chase away the evil spirits. They are usually accompanied by people playing cymbals and drums. Actually I'm not sure if this one is a lion or a dragon but it was very colorful. There were lots of people there taking pictures and enjoying the celebration. It was a fun time!
