Jen joined us in Chinatown today, and to our delight as we arrived, the dragon was going around lighting the fire crackers to scare off the evil spirits.

Here are some of the photos...

The Crackers leave no table uncovered...


This is the first stop... The heavens had opened and there was some serious rain that made the dragons pause...

The Crackers waiting for the dragon...

Fire Crackers outside Yet Sun Groceries

Outside Yet Son Groceries the rain had started again at this point

The heavens opened

This lady was crossing the road and tho she didnt like the noise, but she was quite animated by the crackers.


The Dragon turning around the corner off Goulburn St, onto Sussex Street


Outside Golden Century Restaurant, Giving an offering to the pagan gods, The red bin on the side holds all the paper stuff you burn to go down to hell where the ancestors are... There's a white chook, three chopsticks and three wine cups along with a suckling roast pig. I'm not 100% clear on why you do it, but its a tradition that people follow...
