The dragon year is here! The new year decorations have been put up all over China, nowhere more so than the Old Town Bazaar of Shanghai. There have been statues about dragon stories. Moving dragon and phoenix are set up in front of the old town food quarter. Big “lotus flowers” can be seen all over the town, and red lanterns hung throughout the alleys. The Spring Festival is the most exciting and important festival for the year.
