Chinese New Year Celebration!

Today was a really interesting day! Also a great way to kick off my 3-day weekend. I went out with my mom and siblings to an Asian Pacific Market in our area that was throwing a Chinese New Year celebration. I've never been to one before so it was an amazing new experience. This year is the year of the horse. The scene was great so I had to take pictures and share. You're welcome!

The costumes were amazing! They're so colorful and everything just popped instantly. I was so fascinated by the dragons head especially. 

The individual dragons were also cute and very talented. I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to pull off the moves they did with a partner under a costume. 

Overall it was a really cool new cultural experience and celebration. I would love to do this again another year. Chinese New Year is officially on January 31st so the celebration was a little early but it seems that everyone had a great time. I know I sure did! :)
