Cannery marks Chinese New Year
To celebrate Lunar New Year, discover the important contribution of Chinese workers to the fishing industry at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site. A scavenger hunt will lead children through the Cannery and the children’s craft area will feature activities such as making a money pouch, discovering the mysteries of the Chinese zodiac and a fun chopstick game.
The activities will be available February 9 through 17th.
As an additional attraction for Family Day, Parks Canada is offering a complimentary youth admission (age 6 to 16) when one adult admission is purchased. This will be valid February 9 and 11 at the Cannery.
The Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site of Canada is operated by the non-profit Gulf of Georgia Cannery Society, on behalf of Parks Canada. See www.gulfofgeorgiacannery.com for info.
