January is synonymous with meaningful holidays and of course, new beginnings. From goals to friends, this month we’re celebrating fresh experiences and even a few major openings including one at the Gasoline Alley Museum in Heritage Park, Calgary.

Featuring art, photos and fiction, Gasoline Alley is gearing up to debut its newest exhibit – We Were Here: Stories from Early Chinatown.

Meant to “tell the diverse stories of the Chinese community in early Western Canadian history,” this important display will open to the public on January 14th in conjunction with their Lunar New Year’s celebration

Between 10 am and 4 pm, Calgarians are welcome to visit the park where traditional dancers and local musicians will be performing live.

In addition, guests can take part in traditional writing workshops, mahjong games and various other activities, great for the whole family – but it doesn’t stop there!

Heritage Park is also unveiling the new name of their on-park store which better reflects Chinese grocers in Calgary.
