Vancouver on Parades

ChinatownParade20130217-171752.jpgLast Sunday, the 40th Chinese New Year parade brought thousands out to the streets of Vancouver’s Chinatown to watch the multicultural festivities. The accompanying Spring Festival provided entertainment and activities all around Chinatown all weekend. It was great to see all generations coming together to celebrate the first festival of the year.
While Metro Vancouverites are often complaining about parades that have passed into the history books; PNE Parade, SeaFestival and others over the year. However, there are still plenty of parades around town for everyone to check out throughout the year…after all everyone loves a parade
