Dancing and Moving Houses at the Chinese Lantern Festival in Auckland

Probably not the moving houses you were expecting, but I am pretty sure these dancing moving houses are the silliest thing I have seen this week.

I took this photo yesterday at the Chinese Lantern Festival celebrating the Chinese New Year in Auckland, New Zealand.  It’s a walking ad for Barfoot and Thompson Real Estate agency.  When the “moving houses” saw me and my camera they stopped and posed.  The thumbs up on the left “house” made sense to me, but what is the other guy doing with his hands?

Here are a few more highlights from the Auckland Lantern festival:

      Every year we talk about going to the Lantern festival, but this is the first year we made it up there.

      Just pick up the house and move, everything included – Yes if it were that easy I might do it more often.

    My nephew took the job in Auckland, and I am excited to know he will be stepping into your world come July. My little grand niece will love seeing these sorts of things and everything else wonderful about New Zealand. Please take care of them and don’t let any dragons eat Daria.

      Yay! So, will you be visiting? And don’t worry about dragons, there aren’t any. Those dancing animals were lions. Daria will love it here, and so will her parents.

      It’s the first photo – the houses have legs, they are walking – ergo moving houses? It’s a pun.
