Lunar New Year approaches

Sold out three years running, the Lunar New Year celebration in Cumberland has become known for its dazzling lights and colours, along with live entertainment, a Chinese New Year dinner, drink, prizes, games and silent auction.

The event is a fundraiser for the Cumberland Museum and Archives. Proceeds support the development of exhibits, signage and educational materials.

Organizers invite the public to help welcome the Year of the Snake. The fun begins at 6 p.m. Feb. 9 at the Cumberland Cultural Centre.

Tickets are available at the museum. Adults are $25 and children under 14 are $15.
