Children of the horse.

Revellers flocked to Birmingham's own Chinatown to celebrate the Chinese New Year yesterday.

To mark the Year of the Horse, hundreds of people enjoyed traditional lion dances, firecrackers and martial arts displays.

Hurst Street was filled with colour as children wearing traditional Chinese satin costumes danced and performed for the crowds.

Visitors enjoyed oriental snacks and noodles as they watched the carnival wend its way around The Arcadian Centre.

The event was organised by the city council, Birmingham Chinese Women's Association and the Chinatown Lions Club.
