We lit two strings of firecrackers at the start of the performance and ended with another two strings at the end of the performance - a lot of fire power for the new restaurant. We would like to wish Kevin and his staff all the best and thank you for booking us!

 Adelyn and Andrew's wedding

The Hong De wedding lions travelled to Sherbrooke on the weekend to perform at Adelyn and Andrew's wedding on Poets Lane. As it was such a beautiful day, we decided to go up to the mountain earlier and enjoy a BBQ in the picnic grounds nearby. It turned out to be quite an adventure as half of our party decided to go for a long walk in the forest and got lost! We found them with the aid of Smart phone technology! Anyway, we got to the wedding on time and performed at the scheduled time. Congratulations to Adelyn and Andrew and thank you for letting us help you celebrate on your wedding day!
