Two Dragons Chasing Wisdom
That ball represents wisdom. The Dragons chase it around - some dance troops can cross over themselves almost making a knot.

Kids Ready To Watch Parade
Nara and Claira are in this year's Chinese New Years dresses. We parked the car about an hour before the parade started (free parking!) and were seated on the parade route about 30 minutes before people started walking.
People: Claira, Nara

Dancer With Wing
This wing acted like a fan - they could collapse it and then snap it open again quickly.

Waiting For The Parade To Start
We arrived about 45 minutes before the parade was due to start - no problem getting a seat. The rain started about 10 minutes after the parade did.

God Of Wealth Opening Parade
If you can, try to avoid sitting near the intersections. People coming late will fill in from the intersection so it will get more and more crowded. The middle of the block is better.

Gold Fish
These were some of my favorite things in the parade.

Foo Ho Ho Restaurant
Neon is quite hard to photograph well. Given fog or a wet street - maybe. Just straight up - not so easy. (This isn't excellent.) This restaurant closed (forever) sometime around 2014 or 2015. We did visit once, it was cheap and tasted such.

Dancing Lion
At least these guys had costumes to keep them warm - the "Miss Vancouver" float, the women looked like they would soon succumb to frost bite.
