It was one of the most colourful affairs ever to be held at Park Royal’s main court as West Vancouver MP John Weston and a whole host of volunteers came out to celebrate Asian New Year. Traditional lion dances, arts, crafts, live performances, presentations and lots of food helped mark the occasion. Dignitaries and invited guests were joined by members from the Canadian-Chinese Outreach Committee and the North Shore Korean Youth Community to bring the whole event together. Clearly the “Year of the Snake” is off to a great sssssss-start!
