Hundreds of tiny sheep landed on Vancouver Art Gallery's North Plaza during Lunarfest earlier this year. They are sure to invade once again for Taiwanfest September 5 - 7, injecting some fun and 'cute' into the city! Be sure to snap a picture with the critters while they're here (and be sure to tag @downtownvan)!

Are you heartless and don't care for tiny, cute sheep? Don't worry - Taiwanfest offers diverse programming for everyone!
