A fun-filled CNY Weekend in Calgary

Calgary Branch Council was pleased to greet 150 guests at its annual Chinese New Year celebration on February 9th, 2013. Our chinese new year celebration took place during our fun-filled weekend which included a 2-day Regional Workshop, a Heavenly Realm Festival and Jai, and our annual branch meeting.

This year the Chinese New Year event was held at a restaurant and we were provided with customary 10-course fare.

Our event commenced with a traditional Lion Dance and we were entertained by two groups of musicians that each played chinese instruments. With the help of volunteers, we celebrated with a tai chi demo, a sabre demo and a silent auction that raised approximately $1,200.
