We watched, "Kung hay fat choi", Year of the Hare, Chinese New Year parade,
yesterday in SF. Because of the rain earlier in the afternoon there was no thick layers of people lining the parade route. We were able to just behind the street barricades and saw all the parade procession closely.
The was plenty of fire crackers, colors, and enthusiasm in the parade participants and the crowd.
It was cold but we were bundled up for the weather.
Earlier in the afternoon it was raining but did not deter people in walking and looking at the street fair and shopping. Plenty of colorful umbrellas of different sizes.
It was an enjoyable evening.
