Chinese New Year 2011 Vancouver Photos

Based on the Chinese lunisolar calender, Chinese New Year marks a new year and is marked with celebrations, dances, parades and more! Vancouver is home to Canada's largest Chinatown and its celebrations bring thousands of people to its streets to enjoy many fun events. 2011 rings in the Year of the Rabbit and we had the opportunity to enjoy many different celebrations including stamping a Rabbit Medallion at the Royal Canadian Mint, walking through the lantern-lit Dr. Sun Yat Sen Chinese Garden and watching the amazing Chinese New Year Parade in Chinatown. Here are some of our photos from our Chinese New Year adventures in Vancouver, British Columbia!
