Celebrating Chinatown’s Centennial

Members of Winnipeg’s Chinese community came together on Saturday to help celebrate Chinatown’s 100th birthday.

Hanfeng Chorus - Chinese Opera

Streets were blocked off downtown to make way for the celebrations, which included the Hanfeng Chorus (Chinese opera) as shown above.

Manitoba’s Lieutenant Governor Philip Lee kicked off the day by speaking to the crowd and demonstrated the use of a traditional Chinese toy.

Approximately 20,000 residents of Chinese descent call Winnipeg home.
