Salute to the Chinese New Year.
Chinese New Year 2014 (Year of the Horse on the eastern calendar) came on the night of 30 January 31, but the fireworks on this occasion is usually held on the first night of this year. In our case, it was at 20:00, 1 February 2014. Celebrate Chinese New Year is usually 15 days from the first day of the New Year to the Lantern Festival, which is celebrated on the 15th day of the first month of the Chinese lunar calendar.

Initially wanted to watch fireworks from the Avenue of Stars, but then changed their minds, drive a couple of stops on the double-decker tram and went on foot to the International Exhibition Center, did not regret it, the place was good, on the waterfront, right on the water.
