LunarFest 2018: Celebrating the year of the dog

Today is the last day to celebrate the year of the dog at the north plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery from 11 am to 6 pm.

This is a multi-cultural festival including food, cultural demonstrations, crafts, music, fortune telling and more. Don’t worry about the weather, because the event is under a tent. (Dogs are allowed, of course.)
