The Year of the Snake


Chinatown, Brisbane


We were very excited about the New Chinese Year celebrations and headed off to Chinatown today expecting a big colourful parade. There was no parade per say, but rather a small stage where the dancers performed. The place was packed and we could not see much, even standing on street benches.

The dragons were very small and from what I gathered there was not more than one person per dragon which I found very odd. Not impressed we had a bite to eat and left soon after.

The snake has a special significance for us as we were both born under its influence. This year will surely represent a great year of change for us and maybe for those reasons this foreign celebration made a bit more sense this year. There will be more celebrations during the week and next weekend so we might give it another try. Hopefully we will be surprised 😉
