Year of the Snake

Music, dancing and a fireworks spectacular marked the arrival of the Year of the Snake at Lakeside, University Park. The Chinese New Year celebrations featured lion and dragon dances by schoolchildren and members of the Chinese community.

Sofia Nazaar-Chadwick, Lakeside Arts Centre Marketing Manager, said: “Around 3,000 people braved the weather for great performances from community groups and professional artists, celebrating the arrival of the Year of the Snake, culminating in another stunning firework display. Crescendo Fireworks outdid themselves this year and the crowds were cooing and gasping in all the right
places!”
