Family Day Photos

February 15 was Family Day, a civic holiday here in Edmonton, which made for a long weekend. On Family Day I headed to two events - the Global Village at Churchill Square (a presentation of the Winter Light Festival folks) and the annual skating party at McCauley Rink.

The day before was Valentine's Day, but for people who use a Lunar calendar, it was the start of the New Year. Here are some photos from the celebrations in Chinatown, as well as a short video. 97 Street was totally shut down for most of the afternoon, so that the lion dancers could make their way to all of the businesses, bringing blessings for the new year.
