The 2016 Lunar New Year Parade in Ottawa Chinatown – S11E18

2016 Lunar New Year Main

It was a very cold Sunday afternoon as we paraded down Ottawa Chinatown for the annual Lunar New Year Parade. We returned to do the parade after a year’s absence due to a schedule conflict.
As usual, the lions and dragon as well as animals in costumes and the monkey walked down Ottawa Chinatown to celebrate Lunar New Year and the year of the Monkey.

It was a fun time going down the streets. For this year, I took on the photography and we had enough people helping out and alternate each role.

This weekend couldn’t come at a bad time as temperatures hit -40C with the windchill on Saturday. Sunday was still cold but was not as bad as Saturday.
It was fine to brave the cold and still good to see people come out to see the parade.
