San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade
Dancing dragons, walking puppets, elaborate floats, exploding fireworks, and marching bands highlight San Francisco’s Chinese New Year Parade. A crowd favorite is the spectacular 268 foot Golden Dragon (Gum Lung). It takes a team of over 180 men and women to carry it through the streets. Considered one of the most dramatic parades in the world, celebrate Asian culture at this enthralling event marking the Year of the Dog. February 24, 6:00-8:00pm, chineseparade.com.
