Year of the Ram

Year of the Ram

San Francisco’s Chinatown Chinese New Year Parade – Year of the Ram (Goat, Sheep) lunar year 4713. It was beautiful to see Chinatown so alive. I did my best to convey the magic it’s had for the past couple of weeks as events like the Flower Market Fair, Lion Dancers, and more go on. Make sure to watch in HD.

It was a lot of fun to film and a bit challenging since there were so many people. I think I got some good shots although sadly it got so packed I missed out on a some that I wanted such as kung fu martial artists, dancers, tai chi, and more. I did get dragons though and I know everyone loves those.
