Chinese New Year – Year of the Snake2013 is ruled by the snake. The snake’s personality is graceful and soft-spoken. It has a hypnotic beauty and never gives itself totally away.The mysterious snake is a strategic planner that has everyone guessing its next move. The snake is a strong individual and is usually destined for great success.
The Chinese community played an important role in the history of B.C. canneries. As such, we recognize their contributions in a variety of ways. This year, in honour of the year of the snake and these Chinese workers, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery has organized some fun hands-on activities for children and families to further explore the history of Chinese workers at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery.
Over the celebratory week, from February 9th to 15th, bring your little ones to the Cannery and have them explore engaging activities, enjoy fun games, figure out their Chinese zodiac animal signs, create fanciful money pouches, and more!
