On Monday I told you something about the Chinese New Year Parade in Vancouver’s Chinatown, remember? What I did not mention so far is, that there is much more besides the fantastic parade!
There will be a cultural fair to see more Chinese New Year performances at the Chinese Cultural Centre Courtyard (50 East Pender Street) between 2 and 4 pm, this celebrative event will feature multicultural performances, special lion dance grand finale and martial arts demonstration.
Next to that, for the gourmets amongst us, the annual Chinese New year Banquet will take place at the Floata Seafood Restaurant, featuring lion dances, greetings by the fortune god and a variety show with singing, cultural dances and more. Reception starts at 6 pm in Chinese. The restaurant is located at #400, 180 Keefer Street. Tickets are $35 each.
So, get excited for Sunday, the 6th of February, when Chinatown is getting crazy! 🙂
Start of the parade: 12.00 noon sharp at the Millennium Gate on Pender Street.
