Tonight; my neighbours & I are going to a Chinese New Year Celebration at our local Winery The Okanagan Crush Pad. The party starts at 7:30 & goes until late!

 

Hopefully there will be Lion Dancers there to bless the event.

Always a colourful & noisy experience.

It will bring back all the good memories of when I was in training at Green Dragon Kung fu in Edmonton & all of the years we performed for Chinese New Years at local businesses.

Lol Sharon T!

The food was one of the perks when we performed for Chinese New Year.

Performing outside in a parking lot, in Alberta in the beginning of February, we'd be fairly frozen by the time it was all over. Especially if I was performing with my horse cutter (the pic on the left with the big blade, because it was all metal one's hands got very cold, very quickly.

But we knew the next thing would be a feast at the last place we performed at. 17 courses or so (yum!).

Altho I don't understand why, when people design a pet costume, they don't cut holes for the ears...

Thanx Larry! You have a great weekend too.

Here in Canada; Monday is a holiday (family Day), so there will be a lot of other activities to do as well!
