Dragon Dance

Chinese New Year is here!  I'm thinking in the color red.  The festivities last two weeks, and our Classical Chinese Garden in Portland has something special each day. I visited the garden with a friend yesterday to have tea and watch a Lion Dance. Here are some lovely photos from the day.


 I loved the reflection of the red lanterns on the water.


Each dragon is made of two dancers...these were very talented children! 
Both boys and girls, and I was so impressed with their strength and agility.

I would have loved seeing this. I need to stop by soon. I wanted to go to the floating of the lanterns, but too much on the plate right now. Thanks for showing the beautiful red lanterns.

I wish we lived near a large Chinese population so we could see this too. The photos are a great trip instead - you're doing a good job with them!
