Chinatown Rings In the Year of the Tiger

Today marks the first day of the 2010 Lunar New Year. Following the traditional firecracker festival, colorful lion dance groups marched down the main streets of Chinatown including Mott Street where I made these images. The lion dancers stopped at local businesses and restaurants where they received traditional holiday red envelopes containing good luck Lunar New Year money.
