Crowds flocked to London's Chinatown to celebrate the New Year, Year of the Snake, and they did so in style. With tons of food and craft stands, as well as all sorts of exotic-to-them activities, Londoners got to soak up the Chinese culture in their own back yard.
A parade, starting at Trafalgar Square, saw floats and beating drums head through the city towards Chinatown.
About 100 world-renowned acts, including singers, dancers and musicians, performed in the square to welcome in the Year of the Snake.
People were also treated to a Flying Lion Dance in front of the National Gallery.
Chinatown hosted a number of activities with traditional craft stalls and food stands lining the streets.
