Chinese Lion Dance Visits Laoag

Lion in Laoag

As the Year of the Snake is about to commence, a traditional lion dance by the Santiago Sports and Athletic Association attracts a crowd along Nolasco St. in downtown Laoag.

The incoming Year of the Horse is expected to be fiery as the horse symbolizes power and passion. A social animal, the horse is generally the animal that best represents travel and fame.
