    In the lobby, five lions and 16 performers were taking part in the traditional Lion Dance parade in celebration of the Chinese New Year of the Rabbit.

    “This was really nice and I got some great photos,” said Whin, who spent two days in Canada and was heading to New York City later in the day.

    I admit, it’s been a long time since I’ve explored this sister city to Niagara Falls, Ont. And what I found was this American city is no slouch when it comes to thing to do.
