Launch of Chinese New Year 2008

How cute is this little guy? He's a dragon, and part of the launch of the Chinese New Year. He was performing out the front of Customs House this evening. His ears waggled, his tail wagged, and his mouth opened and closed. He was filled with young, sweaty athletic Chinese boys...

Why were they sweaty I hear you ask? Well there was balancing...


... and then dragon pole dancing course of doom!

It was fast, furious and worth making a video of - sorry it's half in portrait, please be rotating your computer now!

The obstacle course had a point - he had to grab this red string...

And pull it to release the banner!

There were also dragons eating cabbages whilst balanced on poles held up by other sweaty young men..

And an almost luridly coloured long serpentine dragon...

All in all, it was fun - 新年快乐 (Happy New Year).
