Gung Hay Fat Choy! Xin Nian Kuai Le! Happy Chinese New Year! The Year of the Dragon

The Year of the Dragon roared onto the calendar earlier this week.  Lunar New Year's celebrations are happening all over Metro Vancouver and the Chinatown Spring Festival Celebration is one of the biggest. 

At the heart of this wonderful Festival is the traditional Vancouver Chinese New Year Parade which features more than 3,000 participants and more than 50,000 spectators.  The parade this year begins at noon from the Millennium Gate and finishes up at Keefer and Columbia streets.

Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Chinatown will attract many visitors following the parade.  There will be many traditional Chinese events including caligraphy, bean toss, fortune-telling, wish making and more.  Dragons and Dragon Boat festivities will also abound.
