Vancouver’s Chinatown Festival is back again and is expected to be bigger than ever.

The festival is one of the largest multicultural events in the summer, and usually pulls in over 50,000 attendees.

Opening up with a lion dance performance, attendees can expect to see traditional dance and cultural performances, magic performances, plus live band music.

This year’s theme features kung fu, Chinese martial arts, competitions. Other attractions include traditional arts and crafts from all over the world, an open-air market, and multicultural performances.
