New Years in #Toronto Chinatown

Lions danced in the streets for Chinese New Year in the heart of Toronto's Chinatown on Spadina Avenue. The two lions moved their way down the street, dancing in front of stores, preceded by large banners and followed by a drums and large crowds.
In the malls and stores there were some people in traditional dress and many lanterns hanging in walls of vibrant red colour. On shelves golden cats waved their paw in the air, back and forth.
