Last night we attended what is billed as the largest Chinese New Year celebration outside of Asia. It was a three hour long parade in San Francisco. As you might imagine, since we are welcoming the year of the dragon, there were a LOT of fantastic dragons running through the streets of San Fran last night. The sites and sounds and smells were intense. It was truly an amazing spectacle.
There were all sorts of incredible floats and costumes, but my favorite float really had nothing to do with Chinese New Year. It was a giant hot rod, shopping cart from Lucky's supermarkets - Very surrealistic.
Here are some of the sites from the evening.
