Chinese New Year

The Chinese New Year has been heralded on Dam Square in Amsterdam for a number of years now – complete with dragon dances, a lot of pyro and fireworks. The celebration was initiated by Won Yip of Yip Group, as his gift to the city of Amsterdam. In recent years, every celebration has been a unique show, created together with Pyrofoor de Amsterdam. And every year, the show gets bigger than the year before, with the spectacular, typically Chinese dragon dance and a fireworks display from the roof of the Krasnapolsky Hotel. The celebration starts at 6:45 p.m., which best fits the time it starts in Beijing.
