Kung Hei Fat Choi

The Year of the Tiger

I heard rumours that the community was not happy about the changing of the long standing traditional schedule for the event.

But if anyone was unhappy it wasn't evident. There was a huge crowd and the weather co-operated against all predictions.

Oh, I forgot to mention that the Carnival Band was in the p****e.

I think I"ve missed Chinese New Year here haven't I! Darn!

Great P photos and the CB's costumes are pretty cool as well.

It's the Year of the Tiger, but I'm still writing Ox on my checks!

Thanks for injecting some much needed humour Mr. Earl :-)

We need all the help we can get.

In the last photo it looks like the participants are having great fun! Love the colors and pageantry of the festival...I live very close to LA's Chinatown, yet I've never been to a Chinese New Year's celebration...shame on me...maybe next year!!!

So are you saying I DON"T BRING A LITTLE HUMOR?? Well perhaps you'd like me to take my bidness elsewhere???
