Victoria Day Parade
Lioness Ellen is organizing the annual Victoria Chinatown Lioness participation in the Victoria Day Parade May 18 . We hope to see you there!
Lioness Ellen shares :
“We started to participate in the parade about 20 years ago. At the beginning, we only had few people, one time, I marched with Lioness Penny only, on behalf of Lioness. After that, we joined CCBA and walk under the Chinese community team. This year we are joining the Zone 19 Lion and Lioness.
We love to participating because :
1/ The parade is a great way to get out and let the public see us and to build community spirit .
2/ The weather has always been always gorgeous and it is fun for our club to get together to do some fun things, we see different beautiful floats and wonderful marching bands all over the venue .
3/ How often can you wave your hand like the queen ! “
