Richmond, Historic & Heritage Sites
One of the longest dragons in North America, at 100-metres, highlighted Chinese New Year celebrations in Richmond, BC. Huge crowds of all nationalities were wowed by the dragons, cultural dancing, Tai Chi demonstrations and more. A high-flying lion dance was a spectacular delight and something you have to see to believe. The day was filled with fun, entertainment and great food! It finished off with a concert by the hottest band out of Taiwan, F.I.R and some amazing fireworks! What a way to ring in the year of the tiger!

North Vancouver, Festivals & Events
Grouse Mountain, the Peak of Vancouver is such a hot spot that NBC's Today Show is broadcasting LIVE during the Olympics. The Mountain is open 24/7 which means you can ski, snowboard, skate or catch a live taping and then watch the sunrise. In this video, I caught local singing sensation, Micheal Buble's performance live!

Getting around Vancouver area is a lot easier with the new Canada Line
Skytrain system. From Richmond and Vancouver in just 26 minutes, you
can hit all the best spots in the city along the way. From Richmond Centre Mall to the Richmond Oval, to the River Rock Casino and we haven't even hit downtown!
The Canada Line
also take you to Olympic Village where the Olympic Line Demonstration
Streetcar will be running through February and March. Take a ride while
you can! It's so fun and convenient, I hope it will stick around but we'll have to see!
The Canada Line also connects you to downtown Vancouver where the other Canada Line and the West Coast Express begin. You can virtually get anywhere in the city - cheap and conveniently!
