Lisbon’s Chinese community has kicked off celebrations for the New Year of the Monkey.

They laid on a colourful street parade on Saturday, featuring all sorts of traditional performances.

The festivities continued throughout the day in Martim Moniz – the most multicultural neighbourhood of Portugal’s hilly capital city.

Around 20-thousand Chinese nationals live in Portugal.

The Chinese New Year starts on 8 February and the Year of the Monkey succeeds the Year of the Goat.
