The Chinese New Year day lands on Feb 3, 2011. As such, the Chinese communities are busy having parties, parades and celebrations.
In Vancouver, Chinese communities are quite large. Not only has the local Chinese celebrate the Chinese New Year; other Chinese descendants from around the world also celebrate the Year of the Rabbit in Vancouver. VBNF attended the 2011 Spring Festival, hosted by the Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Vancouver in Chinatown last night. We will also be attending another group from the Malaysia, Singapore, and Borneo association in Feb.
Of course there will be a number of activities around Vancouver featuring Parade in Chinatown and other celebrations at the shopping centers in Richmond, Burnaby and many others. See events at:
Last night’s event was filled with joy and happiness. Among some of the VIPs were, the Vancouver’s City Mayor, Gregor Robertson, Richard Lee, MLA, Jenny Kwan, MLA, Raj Chouhan, MLA and many of the community leaders. Over 600 guests were invited to the party. I was quite happy to taste the Chinese liquor that was recently brought into BC that was smooth with clear fresh fragrant that I used to have in Hong Kong.
