Final Part of China's National Day Parade and Ending

Final Part of China's National Day Parade and Ending

This is a continuation of the beginning and military part of China's National Day Parade on October 1st, and of the first part of the civilian parade.  These are photos that I took while watching the parade live on TV.  Again you will see lots of vivid colours, celebration, happiness, fantastic floats, and a spectacular ending.  At the end I have posted a link (which I hope you will be able to open) to a video of the evening celebration and spectacular fireworks display.

13.   I have a feeling that this float represents Chongqing, the city in which I live.  One of its nicknames is Mountain City, because it is surrounded by mountains, and the sides of the mountains are also developed with buildings.  As well, the river flows through, and fronting on the river is an ancient part of the city, indicated by the more traditional buildings at the bottom left. There are many bridges crossing the river, represented by the red bridge.

15.   The pandas definitely represent the city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province, where the Panda reserve and the experimental panda centre (which I have visited and posted an article about in the past) is located.

47.   Happiness.

48.   A little out of order. but this was the last float.

Wow, the parade didn't lack for color or originality of the floats...

Excellent photo essay, Buzz.

Anyone who has been following my photo essays of China can see that vibrant colours are substantially used here, both day and night.  I believe they have an uplifting psychological effect.

Spectacular images and video.  Something that most Americans would never see, even on television. 

Bravo,  Buzz.
