St. Mary’s Square | Pine St. and Quincy St., San Francisco, CA
Kick off the New Year with a procession that gives a taste of what the larger Lunar New Year parade will bring.
The mini parade begins at historic St. Mary’s Square, and includes giant walking puppets, costumed stilt walkers, colorful dancers, electrifying lions and drums, and of course the noble Dragon. It follows the original parade route down Grant Avenue and proceeds to the Flower Fair’s main stage on Washington Street below Grant Avenue.
