Gung Hay Fat Choy! Ring in the Year of the Horse by going downtown to celebrate with a parade. San Francisco’s Chinese New Year Parade has been named one of the top ten parades in the world by the International Festivals and Events Association. The Chinese in San Francisco started the parade in the 1860’s to educate their community about their culture. The parade consists of elaborate floats, lion and folk dancers, marching bands, Chinese acrobats, and a 268 foot long Golden Dragon. Be on the lookout for some of your SI classmates participating in the parade!
