Over 150 people performed during a parade in Christchurch, New Zealand on Feb. 8, in celebration of Spring Festival.

The parade route went past the Bridge of Remembrance and a commercial pedestrian street, eventually arriving at the Cathedral Square. Well-dressed participants then performed a waist drum dance, fan dance, cheongsam show, dragon dance and lion dance, in addition to other performances.

The performances attracted thousands of locals to gather around and watch. They took pictures and interacted with the performers throughout. Local Chinese praised the performance, expressing hope that there will be opportunities for them to participate in similar activities in the future. Local media also devoted extensive coverage to the event.
