On July 22 and 23, 2016, the Confucius Institute at the University of Saskatchewan participated in the FMG Dragon Boat Festival held at Rotary Park, Saskatoon by the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.
More than 200 people were present at this great event. The U of S CI was invited to perform the Lion Dance at 18:30 July 22, and 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 14:00 July 23. The lovely performance and the rhythmic beat of the drum and gong brought the audience to great excitement, showing their appreciation with applauses, cheering and dancing with the lion.
The participation of the CI made many local communities get to know the U of S CI and the traditional Chinese Festival culture.
