This weekend is the Chinese New Year celebration! On February 11 2012, a large parade will roam the streets of downtown San Francisco where loads of people will crowd the side walks, getting in on the Chinese New Year action!
This event has been taking place since 1958 where lots of action has been happening. Lanterns, fire crackers, and lots more are a must to see, including a Chinese dragon! One Chinese tradition that I know is that the Chinese set off fire crackers to scare the enemies away so they don't have any bad luck.
Come to the festival this saturday for lots of excitement and truck loads of fun!
