Carnival Band to Help Bring in the Rat

The Carnival Band has been invited again this year to participate in Vancouver’s Chinese New Year Parade, one of the city’s largest non-commercial parades. The event starts at 10am on Sunday, February 10th at the Millenium Gate (Pender and Taylor St.) in Chinatown, and features the largest assembly of traditional lion dance teams in Canada.

As well as showcasing Vancouver’s vibrant Chinese and Asian communities, the parade provides a safe and fun setting for a wide range of street performances representing the diverse cultural heritage of Vancouver and Canada. There are estimated to be 3,000 performers and 50,000 spectators at this enormously engaging event, and Channel M’s media coverage will bring the parade to thousands more.
