DFW Chinatown In Richardson

This past weekend I put on fuzzy sequined pants and returned to my lion dancing ways to help Dallas celebrate the Lunar New Year. It was cool to watch my fellow Chin Woo brethren perform a great dragon dance. I used to always be part of the dragon dance team, so I didn't usually get to see it as a spectator. Great job heading up the dragon this year, @american_dragon1299! And go USA Chin Woo! #dragondance #liondance #chinesenewyear #lunarnewyear #chinwoo #usachinwoo #jkwongkungfutaichi #fuzzy #dragon #chinatown #happychinesenewyear2016 #chinesenewyear2016
