SHOPPERS in Rhyl helped celebrate Chinese New Year on Monday to kick off a week of half-term entertainment.

Malcolm Hall, Town Centre Manager, organised the event which included Chinese Lion Dancing, a stilt walker, Chinese music, workshops along with a balloon modeller making snakes to mark the Year of the Snake.

Mr Hall said: "We have had workshops with children making masks and we have had a chinese Sedan chair going up and down the High Street.

"There has been a good number of people in the town and a nice family atmosphere.

"There has been a buzz in the town.

"I want to make these events bigger and better each year, I want to build on them."

Chinese New Year celebrations last 15 days with Sunday being the official start of Year of the Snake.

Yesterday (Tuesday) Rhyl held its first ever pancake race which took place on Sussex Street with costume characters.

On Thursday the town centre will host a love-filled day of entertainment in aid of Valentine’s Day.
