To the sound of gongs and drums, five collectives and 19 individual participants, accompanied by dragon and lion dance performances, strode along the city’s iconic streets to showcase their designs.

Spectators were wowed by the 24 creative pieces that married Chinese zodiac animal culture and Mexican culture, epitomized by the blue water rabbit and the goddess rabbit - which took home first place prizes.
