Chinese New Year At Binondo 2015 (Part 2 of 2)

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.

It’s quite a long dragon. I guess the longer (dragon), the better.

The streets of Binondo are decorated with red Chinese lanterns. Red is a lucky color for Chinese.
