BUCSSA Chinese community brings new year celebrations to Brandon


This year the Brandon University Chinese Students and Scholars Association (BUCSSA) will be hosting the 2018 Chinese New Year celebration on Feb.17th in the Westman Manitoba Centennial Auditorium. It will be a great chance to learn more about Chinese culture, and enjoy the Chinese New Year together. They are expecting several hundred people to attend the event which includes performances and a Chinese dinner. Local Chinese talent will provide the performances and most of them are Chinese students from BU. Also, they will have several prize draws during the celebration.  The entire evening will be a great opportunity to experience the folk customs.
