Recognizing the need to create meaningful relationships with where we live, the Dragon Walk parade and dance is an opportunity to engage community in joyous celebration of the ecological diversity found in and around Little Mountain / Cambie Corridor. 

Civic engagement fostered through fun, relevant activities is the basis of a healthy, empowered society where folks have agency. Community members will strengthen connectivity between each other and the environment through art-centered, place-based programming..

Let's celebrate these supernatural, wild, un-ceded, shared Coast Salish lands!
