Recent Events

We had a good turn-out for the Chinese New Year's Parade this year. There were many new members who came and participated. We especially want to thank the parents of the younger members who greatly helped this year. The number of spectators was up this year and was estimated at 60,000 people. There were also more participants marching in the parade than in last year and the parade still finished on schedule. Congratulations to our sifu who was the chief co-ordinator for this year's parade. This year, in addition to two lions we included a choreographed routine with Hoy Ping flags. Both our lion dance and flag routine were featured in the Channel M broadcast. After the parade we took the lions to honour the Chee Dack and Sam Duck societies with lion dances. At the Kwantlen College performance and at this event, we were pleased to have Vincent Taylor taking snapshots for a photographic display he is assembling. He has done previous collections on other multicultural events in Vancouver. We will soon have a selection of his photographs in our Photos section. If anyone has interesting photographs of our group in the parade please send them to (or email us to make arrangements). We have some new material we are getting ready for the Photos and Videos sections. Unfortunately, our member that was taking photos of us during the parade lost her camera afterwards. We hope to add the Channel M footage to our site. Other recent media coverage we have received were a picture of our lion dancers (taken at the Hoy Ping site) in the Vancouver Sun , several photos by the Kwantlen student newspaper and a reference in the Lieutenant Governor's website... stay tuned. There will be no class this Thursday as we will be doing a lion dance in Metrotown for the Accenture group.
