The annual Chinese New Year Parade drew an estimated 100,000 people to Vancouver’s Chinatown on Sunday to celebrate the Year of the Sheep.

The event, which has run for 42 years, filled the city streets with dragons, lions, intricate costumes and a sea of red. For all the best moments of this year’s parade, take a look at our photo gallery below.
