Previous Celebrations in Madrid in Pictures!

Our friends at Little Natives who frequent this annual event have contributed these images and had this to report:

The celebrations started with a parade from Puerta del Sol where the participating associations gathered and marched on to Plaza de España. Participants included the many Chinese Associations, sports clubs and other educational groups, all colorfully dressed in traditional garb and the elders sporting imperial robes.

The Parade ended at Plaza de España where there were many shows, a small market with traditional Chinese crafts, and Kung Fu exhibitions by the Shaolin Temple Cultural Centre.
