PHOTOS: Chinese New Year's eve in Binondo
MANILA, Philippines - Festivities in Binondo, Chinatown are non-stop from February 9 (Chinese New Year's eve) until February 10 (Chinese New Year).
Streets and alleyways are rivers of red shirts through which slither dragon lion dancers with their fearsome but comical masks.
These photographs try to capture the color, energy, and good vibrations of the celebrations leading to the start of the Year of the Water Snake. Enjoy!
