The month of January was filled with excitement and cultural celebrations geared towards both children and adults at Woodside Square. The cold weather did not keep anyone away from the various festivities that took place at the community mall. January 28th was the beginning of the Chinese New Year and many community members took advantage of the range of happenings throughout the mall. Over 200 red lucky money envelopes were distributed to passersby before an elaborate Chinese showcase took place hosted by Daniel Ho and Marina Tang. The collaboration with AM1540 A1 Chinese Radio presented a slew of engaging activities for audience members including The Price is Right Game. The show ended with a show stopping performance of Chinese Face Mask Changing that did not fail to amaze the crowd. The mall hosted a traditional lion dance the following day where mall patrons were witness to a spectacular costume performance that symbolized wisdom and prosperity. The entire event resembled a parade as the performance carried throughout the mall to different stores and tenants. Onlookers watched the bright costume colours and sequins as well as its unique movements with awe and great admiration.
