Chinese New Year at the 2010 Olympics

Ring in the New Year in Richmond during the 2010 Winter Olympics!

Ring in the New Year: While celebrating the Asian Lunar New Year in one of Canada’s most densely Asian-populated communities is an event to behold any year, when Richmond rings in the Year of the Tiger on February 14th, two days into the Olympic Winter Games, it’s sure to be an unprecedented bash. Visit Golden Village, a four-block hub of Asian malls, or dine at one of the area’s 400-some-odd Asian eateries. While you’re in Richmond, make sure to visit the O Zone – the largest free Olympic festival. With DJs spinning till 2 a.m. every night of the Games, outdoor skating, free concerts from the likes of Bedouin Soundclash and more, the massive venue (it spans the length of 66 football fields) is a can’t-miss party, easily accessible from the airport or downtown Vancouver via the new Canada Line.
