"The Canley Heights Lunar New Year has both cultural significance and an incredible atmosphere. It’s success comes from the community’s involvement in creating an event for the community."

The event is proudly supported by the Canley Heights Business Community and Canley Heights Restaurant Committee. Proceeds are donated to Pal Buddhist School.
