Chinese New Year: The Year of the Tiger

It's officially the Year of the Tiger now. Here are a few pictures taken in the Shui Nan Market and a local park right before the new year (though because it's been rainy for most of the last week or so, I didn't get as many as usual).

A mini parade down one of the main streets of the market. The people were handing out flyers (in Chinese) for something or other, and candy to the kids.

Decorations for sale.

Tasty holiday snacks. Most of these were made of various nuts and seeds in a sticky nougat bar.

Hand painted paper lanterns on display in the park.
