Blackpool’s streets came alive with colour as Chinese new year celebrations paraded into the resort.

The town’s Chinese Community Association are preparing to welcome in the year of the horse on January 31 and lined Church Street with an array of vibrant traditional dragons ahead of the big day.

Blackpool Mayor and Mayoress Coun Eddie Collett and Heather Collett were among the guests celebrating in St John’s Square alongside gathered schoolchildren and shoppers.
