Gong Hat Fat Choy! (bonus points to those who know what that means)
It's Chinese New Year, come photograph the Lion Dance Parade. Unlike other parades, you don't wait in one spot for this one to pass you by. Instead, you walk with it as they cover all of Chinatown. You'll get images of the Lions/Dragons dancing in the streets, fire crackers going off, a martial arts demonstration, and lots of interesting faces in the crowd.
I strongly suggest taking the speedline (get off at 8th and market, then walk up to Chinatown).
We'll meet shortly before the parade starts, by the Arch at 10th and Arch. The parade is scheduled to start at 11am just down the street at 10th and Spring. If you get there late, just listen for the firecrackers and you'll find the parade.
Afterwards, I'm sure some of us will go for Chinese food.
