God Of Wealth Opening Parade
If you can, try to avoid sitting near the intersections. People coming late will fill in from the intersection so it will get more and more crowded. The middle of the block is better.

At least these guys had costumes to keep them warm - the "Miss Vancouver" float, the women looked like they would soon succumb to frost bite.

Lion Dance
The gentleman in the back was jumping on his "back" to get this high - it was totally effective.

I have no idea what is going on here, but I'm sure these people are loud normally.

I tried to frame the dragon is the background into this but I just wasn't good enough.

Mounted Horseman
I was impressed with the quality of the gear on the horses, as well as the detail that went into the armor.

Pulling Torch
A group of 3 to 10 people would carry these lit torches down. The torches were obviously heavy and there was little protection from the fire.
