This weekend it’s all about Chinatown, as the Chinese New Year Parade takes place Saturday from 5:15 to 8PM, and the Chinese Community Street Fair runs Saturday from 10AM to 4:30PM, and Sunday from 9AM to 5PM.
Named one of the world’s top ten parades, the Chinese New Year Parade in San Francisco is the largest celebration of its kind outside of Asia. It originated in the 1860s. The parade route runs along Market, wraps around Union Square, follows Post to Kearny, and ends just beyond Portsmouth Square.
In case you haven’t heard, this is the Year of the Monkey, and it’s supposed to be a good year for innovation and improvisation, and businesses should thrive. Sounds good to us.
