To the sounds of horns, drums and gongs, the Dragon Dance is performed in the heart of Chinatown in Binondo, Manila on the eve of the Chinese New Year on February 9, 2013. 

BBC has more explantion of the festival

No, we don't celebrate it here in the Provinces: Not that many Chinese here (Most Chinoys tended to start businesses, and we are a farm area).
 It's the year of the Water Snake. And that may not be good news, according to the Inquirer:

The year of the Yin Water Snake: Conflict, disease, accidents ahead–but also a booming economy..
