Barcelona: Chinese New Year Parade 2015

Some photographs from today’s Lunar New Year parade in Barcelona. As usual, a good mix of costumes, drums and of course dragons.

Not particularly great weather for the event – cold and with occasional rain. However, people seemed to be enjoying themselves nonetheless…

We had hoped to find some of the people from the Barcelona Photography Meetup – but lost track of everyone in the crowds…
