The images here in the gallery and on the monitor are of San Francisco’s 2018 Chinese New Year Parade held this past February 24th. First held in 1858, San Francisco’s parade is the oldest and largest event of its kind outside of Asia, and the largest Asian cultural event in North America.
It combines the fundamentals of the Chinese Lantern Festival with a typical all-American parade. This year’s parade represented the Year of the Dog, a zodiac sign that highlights dependability, building loyalty at work and in relationships, and building material wealth.
A special thanks to the five photographers whose work is represented here.
