Chinese culture is being promoted for another year in the Canadian city of Toronto. And this year, the five mascots of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games are in the line up all in the name of "Dragon Day".
Ancient Chinese Opera, Dragon and Lion dance, and Kongfu besides all these traditional performances, the five Beijing Olympic mascots were on show in Toronto's China town to celebrate "Dragon Day".
A Chinese Toronto resident said, "As Chinese, we are very proud to host Olympics in China."
"Though living abroad, we are very happy that China will host the Olympics. We give the Olympic Games our best wishes. And we believe it will be successful." said another Chinese Toronto resident.
A Toronto resident said, "I have just come back from Beijing. It is now so well-built that it won't be a problem for Beijing to host the Olympics. Every Chinese person should go and see today's Beijing."
And those Olympic fans who haven't been to Beijing before, are eager to learn more about the host city.
"I think it's really interesting that it's going to be Beijing this time. Because I'm hoping while I love watching Olympics, you usually get to learn so much about the city where they are. And I really don't know much about Beijing. I'm looking forward to learning a lot about it." said a spectator.
Over 30,000 residents and tourists took part in this year's "Dragon Day" celebration.
