A Very Wet Chinese New Year's Parade

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
We are watching the SF Chinese New Year's parade. Here, it is cold, windy and raining, raining rats and dogs (it's the year of the rat). Our parade, I think, is the biggest Chinese New Year's Parade outside of China. Gung hay fat choy! Everybody is Chinese on Chinese New Year!

Do you have a large chinese population there?

I'm curious...we are discussing ethnicities in one of my classes.....do many people that are NOT chinese watch the parade or go to it?

Rain kinda dampens the celebration, huh?

I have been to it before. We used to go to China Town alot in San Francisco. The Storm is starting to hit hard here right now.

San Francisco has the largest Chinese population outside of China. The Chinese helped build the western part of the Transcontinental railway. Amy Tam's books are very good at describing Chinese immigrants to SF. Lots of Chinese Americans have been here for a number of generations, like my best friend Mae and her husband Morrie.
