Chingay Flag Procession 2

Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia

"...In the past, Chingay procession was held in celebration with the birthdays of the Chinese deities or the procession of the Goddess of Mercy ( Guanyin ), its purpose was to worship and enjoy with the deity. During the earliest procession in more than 100 years ago, the earliest English newspapers Echo ( had stopped publication ) adopted the word CHINGAY PROCESSION for this special event..." - reference from http://www.penangchingay.org/about.html

Great stunt with the flag and I love the guy on stilts.
Nice capture of this Chingay procession, Alex.
