Waiting

The San Francisco Chinese New Year Festival and Parade is an annual event held in San Francisco.
It combines elements of the Chinese Lantern Festival with a typical American parade. First held in the
1860s, possibly as early as 1853, it is the oldest and largest event of its kind in the world. The parade route begins on Market
street and terminates in Chinatown.

This young one is in the staging area waiting for the parade to start. She is wearing a dragon costume, holding her mask / head in front of her.

And i thought they will be wearing pig masks - isn't it now the year of the pig? Lovely post.
John Eagle: It is The Year of The Pig and there were kids and adults wearing pig masks but not as elaborate. These dragon costumes are a tradition and Chinese often consider themselves descendants of the dragon. Hence you will see the dragon no matter what year it is.
Hi John smile
Very nice and perfect colors - Just as if I'm there !!
John Eagle: Thanks. It was very colorful and bright. A lot of red as well.
