5th Shaolin Mid-Autumn Festival Party

Shaolin-Mid-Autumn-Festival-2014-017

Downtown Toronto students gathered at the Shaolin Mid-Autumn Festival in Markham to celebrate one of the most important Chinese events of the year. The event started with a speech by Master Shi Guo Song, the leader and man behind all things traditional Shaolin in Canada. This was followed by a congratulatory speech by Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti.

After the speeches we were entertained by yet more incredible martial arts Shaolin kung fu performances by the Shaolin kids representing Shaolin Team Canada in the upcoming 10th Zhengzhou International Shaolin Wushu competition in October. Other performances include singing, a cultural stick dance, and then a surprise hip hop dance by some of the Shaolin kids!

Money was also raised for Shaolin Luohan Temple through vendor sales including tea from the Shaolin Tea Shop run at the STQI Toronto school.
