Thousands gathered on Saturday for a Chinese New Year Cultural Fair at the Oregon Convention Center. Organized by the Portland Chinese Times and the Portland Art & Cultural Center, the fair featured 20 stage acts and more than 70 vendors.

Portland Fire & Rescue’s own Lieutenants Michael Silva and Joe Troncoso and Firefighter/Assistant Public Information Officer Tommy Schroeder were on hand to take part in the cultural activities.  The firefighters also provided information on fire and life safety and offered giveaway items to adults and kids who stopped by to chat.

January 23rd marked the start of the Chinese Lunar New Year 2012, the Year of the Dragon. One of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac, the dragon signifies good fortune and power.
