40th Vancouver Chinese New Year Parade
February 17, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
The renowned Chinese Lunar New Year Parade will return in the Year of the Snake on Sunday, February 10th, 2013. This signature event of Vancouver’s Chinatown will feature lion dances, cultural dance troupes, marching bands, martial arts performances and much more.
Year after year, the Chinatown parade is an annual cultural extravaganza not to be missed.
The parade starts at 11:00 am on Sunday, February 17th, 2013, and will take two and a half hours to complete. Extended by two blocks from last year, the parade route is about 1.5 Km long. It starts at the Millennium Gate on Pender Street (between Shanghai Alley and Taylor Street), proceeds east along Pender Street, turns south onto Gore Street, turns west onto Keefer Street and then disperses at Keefer at Taylor.
