OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The highlight was the arrival of the Central Victorian Lion Dance Troupe who performed the Chinese Lion Dance to much drum beating and Cymbal playing which thrilled the crowd. The day was finished off with some Chinese Dragons parading around the hall much to the joy of the audience who all got very involved in the celebrations.
