San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade
My well-connected sister got us super VIP tickets to watch the SFCNY parade this year. We got front row seats, free pre-party invites, a chance to meet last season's Survivor winner (Yul) and very cool goodie bags to boot! Sure feels like a great start to this Golden Pig Year!!
Definitely beats sitting at the end of the parade route when all the bands are tired of performing and all the kiddos are ready for potty breaks. Nice to be at the Head O' tha Parade.
Here is the view from the pre-party shindig. Beautiful Day...couldn't have been prettier.
Here are the lovely treats that they offered. Mega dimsum, including an amazing green spicy veggie dumpling that I long for to this day...and ice cold Chardonnay. Niiiiice.
View from the parade site.
And, sunset comes.
And, Piggies! Oh My!
Serious Warriors....swinging lumbering arms as they walk over mounds of firecrackering explosions.
Beautiful dancers.....fluttering colorful fans.
But, what is up with these freaky heads????
