Here are the other pictures I took of the recent Chinese New Year Festival celebration at Ongpin Street, Binondo, Manila. I hope to see you again next year for the Chinese New Year Celebration 2016.
The Chinese New Year Festival in Binondo is also a perfect way to bond with friends.
I believe that the Chinatown in Binondo is one of the oldest Chinatowns in the world.
It’s all about drums and music.
Bring out the big drums for the festival.
Binondo Police marching band?
Kids and their improvised lion dance costume.
The head of the lion.
It seems like Sun Life Financial is a major sponsor.
It’s quite a long dragon. I guess the longer (dragon), the better.
Kids performing the lion dance with their improvised props.
The Binondo Church dedicated to Saint Lorenzo Ruiz, the first Filipino saint.
A young boy selling yema, a kind of pastry.
You would see hundreds of chimes on the streets of Binondo.
The streets of Binondo are decorated with red Chinese lanterns. Red is a lucky color for Chinese.
