bad pic of Lion dance


I was in my apartment and heard some drums. I headed down to investigate. Sure enough, a Lion dance was happening in Yau Ma Tei, third day of LNY. I took some video that hopefully will get uploaded soon. There were lots of lion dances within the 2 week period HK celebrates LNY. I miss hearing the drumming in the streets.

One cool thing I observed was how young and old stopped and watched the Lion dances as they passed with a big smile. I thought it was cool because there were many occasions I saw this dance performed over the past 2 weeks and to see these dances bring so much joy to people, even after they'd probably seen these dances a thousand times.
