Wesbrook Village comes alive for the Lunar New Year bursting with fun everywhere you look. It starts off with everyone’s favourite (kids love this one…), the traditional lion dance which leaps and roars throughout the village – a sight to behold. Follow the lion parade style from shop to shop. The lion dance begins in Norman Mackenzie Square (across from BierCraft Restaurant) at 12:30pm.

Speaking of traditions, what would the Lunar New Year be without red envelopes? The shops and services in Wesbrook Village will be handing out lucky red packets (while quantities last). You can also win dinner at Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle (noms).

There will also be cultural performances, Lunar New Year games, riddles, kids crafts, fortune-telling, calligraphy and more at the Wesbrook Community Centre.  And don’t miss out on the traditional tea ceremony with Murchie’s Tea. The Year of the Rooster is looking good already.

One of the great things about Wesbrook Village, is the parks,  playgrounds and nearby amenities. When the little ones are ready to burn off a little more steam, explore one (or more) of the Village’s playgrounds.
