On Tuesday night, my lion dance troupe had the opportunity to perform for Senator Thanh Hai Ngo’s Lunar New Year celebration. It was held at the Sir John A. Macdonald Building across from the West Block of Parliament Hill.
Chinese/Lunar New Year doesn’t start until February 8th. In a way, it’s considered the unofficial kick off to the festivities. It’s also the Year of the Monkey.
It was a nice event as there were some current politicians and senators mingling around. There was another event next to the building, which is the former Bank of Montreal. It was good to see some political figures around.
The photo posted above was after the lion dance performance and Conservative MP, Alice Wong was doing a bit of drumming. It was a fun night to say the least.
