Lion Dance

We went to the Lunar New Year Festival in the city of Springvale this morning. Surprisingly easy to find a parking spot and it was a beautiful warm sunny day. There were Lion Dances, Rides and Food Stalls.  The Lion Dances were performed by Cambodian Lion Dance Team who did magnificent shows. The festival will be closed tonight around 9.00/10.00 PM.

Very wise…. no fireworks🙂 Instead there were many firecrackers.

From all the food varieties that were sold in the fair, I noticed that the fried spiral potatoes on sticks were the popular one. Oh yes, it is also commonly known as potato ‘TORNADO’ on stick🙂

I found the Lion Dance videos on YouTube. Thanks Reachea Ear for sharing🙂
