The Comox Valley Multicultural Society will host Lunar New Year Festival – Year of Sheep (Goat) on Tuesday, Feb. 24, from 5-9 p.m. at the Native Son’s Hall.
Among the entertainment on the slate will be the award-winning Jhuo Lan Dragon Dance Team of Taiwan, performing a traditional dragon dance.

The team will perform four of its world famous dragon dances.
Tickets are $25 per person, and includes a full meal. Children under 10 get in for free.
