A new year in Liverpool

A very belated Chinese new year to you too! 

I took these photos a few weeks ago in Liverpool. Mathieu and I stumbled upon China town and joined half of Liverpool in the festivities. I have never had the luck of seeing anything like this before (with the exception of youtube of course) and it was amazing to see in the flesh. We walked down the street, under the arch to dancing dragons and lion puppets. It was amazing to see so many people joining in, buying monkey pendants, scarfing noodles (just me?) and going crazy with the children when they brought the fire crackers out.

I must admit we got there quite late, as I mentioned before we stumbled across it. We only caught the last parts of the dances but I'm so glad that we caught the dragon performance at the end. Next year we are definitely going to London China Town, as it's much bigger than Liverpools. Can't wait already!

Has anyone been to a Chinese New Year street fair before?
