Chinese New Year celebrations in Buenos Aires' Chinatown.

Belgrano C is a subsection of the Belgrano borough of Buenos Aires, Argentina. This neighborhood contains several Chinese restaurants, grocery stores, and even a Buddhist temple. It is the heart of the Chinese community in Argentina. The neighborhood began to develop in the 1980s when newly-arrived Taiwanese and Chinese immigrants settled in this area.[1]

The neighborhood is also known for its celebration of the Chinese New Year. On January 22nd the streets of South Belgrano dress up in bright red and golden yellow, as dragon-like puppets and chariots run through the streets undulating and waving at the fantastic rhythm of traditional Chinese music.
