The historic Village of Cumberland will be the site of two events this weekend.

Chinese New Year in this Year of the Snake occurred Feb. 10.

In keeping with the theme the Lantern Jungle, a display of colourful, sculpted lanterns will allow visitors to enjoy the array on display Feb. 22 to 24 in the Cumberland Recreation Centre from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

On Feb. 23 (not Feb. 22 as earlier reported), sky lanterns will be released from the Recreation Centre parking lot at 7 p.m.

The same day, the annual Heritage Faire will open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on the upper and lower floors of the Cultural Centre, across Dunsmuir Avenue from the Recreation Centre.

The theme of the Heritage Faire this year is Good Neighbours – Heritage Homes and Neighbourhoods. Admission to the Heritage Faire is by donation.

Plan to visit the displays, enjoy the music and dancing and sample the food that will be available at the concessions. This will be a fun-filled, family-oriented weekend in the village.
