EVENT: Chinese New Year Parade, Feb 17, 2013

This year’s Chinese New Year in Vancouver’s Chinatown will be the biggest one ever in its 40-year history, and we’ll be there again this year, too!

Full details on the parade are here:

Make sure you view the photo gallery from last year, too. Lots of amazing colours and costumes, and we even made the 14th frame! (Hint: we usually walk just in front of the fire trucks.)

Gung Hey Fat Choi!
