"Chinese New Year Celebration" Chinatown Tip by hamouras

Chinatown, Liverpool: 21 reviews and 35 photos

Since Liverpool has the oldest Chinese community in the UK (some people say in Europe), this Chinese tradition is celebrated every year on the first Sunday after the Chinese New Year (or Moon New Year).

A lot of activities take place like Martial Arts demonstrations, Dragon and Lion dance and loads of fireworks. There is usually a small concert with local bands following the events of the celebration. The streets are filed with people to see this oriental tradition. Well, ok, maybe i'm exaggerating a bit. It probably isn't as spectacular as in other bigger cities than Liverpool, but i enjoyed it a lot this year since it was the first time i saw these festivities.
