Lunar New Year is ushered in around the world

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Dancing dragons, lions and pigs helped ring in a colourful and fun-filled Lunar New Year in Lima, New York and Hong Kong on Tuesday (February 05).

In Hong Kong, the annual parade attracts thousands of visitors every year to the streets of Tsim Sha Sui, a shopping and night-life area in Kowloon.

The 2019 edition of the Cathay Pacific International Chinese New Year Parade hosted nine colourful floats and 25 performing troupes from Hong Kong, the mainland and overseas including participants from Austria and Spain.

In New York, firecrackers scared away the evil spirits as New Yorkers celebrated the Lunar New Year and the start of the Year of the Pig.

In years past, cold, frigid, winter weather forced performers to wear heavy coats over their colorful costumes.

But Tuesday brought mild weather in the mid 60's.

In Lima, traditional Chinese music and performances were held including the traditional dragon dance complete with the ornate lion costumes, and music to the beat of drums, cymbals, and gongs.

Many Chinese citizens migrated to Peru shortly after World War II in search of a better life, with Lima reportedly having Latin America's largest Chinese community.
