Chinese New Year in Maidenhead – The Year of The Dragon

Chinese New Year in Maidenhead – The Year of The Dragon

A couple of years ago we experienced the Chinese New Year celebrations in Maidenhead which then marked the Year of the Dog. The sun shone as the Chinese Dragons danced their way down the high street after starting the procession with firecrackers, drums and dancing. There was a great atmosphere in the town as the Chinese Dragons, a symbol of China, which are believed to bring good luck to people, made their way along the procession route - it was fantastic to watch.
