There isn’t a Chinese Pavilion this year at Folklorama, but the next best thing will be celebrated this weekend in a two-day cultural showcase downtown.
The second annual Winnipeg Street Festival hosted by the Winnipeg Chinese Cultural and Community Centre will occupy King Street between James Avenue and Alexander Avenue, as well as Rupert Avenue at the intersection of King Street.
Performances include the Indochina Chinese Association Dancers, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Summer Bear Dance, Fire Dancing and more.
Chinese street vendors will be selling their wares and cultural/historical displays will show the Chinese-Canadian experience in Winnipeg.
The Manitoba Children’s Museum will entertain the little ones as story tellers relate the legends of China’s culture.
The festival runs Saturday from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
