Chinese New Year in Madrid
Chinese New Year celebrations are becoming quite popular in Madrid. Our friends at Little Natives who frequent this annual event have contributed these images and had this to report:
The celebrations start with a parade from Puerta del Sol where the participating associations gather and march on to Plaza de España. Participants include the many Chinese Associations, sports clubs and other educational groups, all colorfully dressed in traditional garb and the elders sporting imperial robes.
The Parade ends at Plaza de España where there are many shows, a small market with traditional Chinese crafts, and Kung Fu exhibitions by the Shaolin Temple Cultural Centre.
The day of the celebration varies from year to year but will most likely be on a weekend close to the actual Lunar New Year's Day, either before or after. The program is as follows:
10:00 a.m. - Parade participants gather at Puerta del Sol
11:30 a.m. - Parade gets underway
02:00 p.m. - Parade arrives at Plaza de España and festival and shows begins
