You’ll need to arrive early and brave hordes of revelers to see San Francisco’s Chinese New Year Parade, but it’s worth it. You’ll see gorgeous costumes, elaborate floats, stilt walkers, lion dancers, the newly crowned Miss Chinatown USA, and the famous Golden Dragon, “Gum Lung”, all accompanied by music, drumbeats, and over 600,000 firecrackers! Parade starts on Market Street, up Grant, down Post, then through Chinatown on Kearney, ending at Columbus. Route follows Post, Sutter and Kearny on the outskirts of Chinatown.
