I went to our annual Chinese/Lunar New Year Parade here in San Francisco. I've been going since childhood - it is a fun event, and is another way I was spoiled: I didn't know as a kid that everyone doesn't get to go to light-up (illuminated) nighttime parades in honor of Lunar New Year!
I love this town.
I look traditional blurry/action photos of the parade, which you can see here - just don't look at them too closely.
My hearing will recover from the firecracker barrage over the next few days. :)
