Chinese New Year 2016 Fun

14th Feb 2016 was a massive day of celebrations in London city – Valentine’s day for one, the BAFTAs and Chinese New Year… My new Nikon D3300 finally came out to play [speaking like a pro photographer lol] as we joined thousands to celebrate the Chinese New Year, starting off with a parade at 10am from Trafalgar Square, through Shaftesbury Avenue and all the way to Chinatown [ok so we missed the parade – at least we saw the dancing dragons!], then a massive stage was set up in the square with traditional music, dancing and theatre.

We later met with family friends and ended the day at the  National Gallery which was fun too – sadly my camera battery had died at this point, we also forgot to bring the stroller along for the little one notwithstanding we had a blast! So keep scrolling and enjoy 🙂

En-route excited to see dragons!
