Getaway Trip: Chinese New Year’s Parade

Nowhere in the world will you see a lunar new year parade with more gorgeous floats, elaborate costumes, ferocious lions, exploding firecrackers , and of course the newly crowned Miss Chinatown U.S.A. and her court. A crowd favorite is the spectacular 268' Golden Dragon ("Gum Lung") It takes a team of over 100 men and women from the martial arts group, White Crane to carry this dragon throughout the streets of San Francisco. Sign up for this trip, or other Getaway  Trips, at the Student Center Info + Tickets Desk or online at   


Please note, the parade is at 5:15 PM but we need to get there early for parking and so you can find a good spot to eat and watch the parade. The group does not need to stay together for this trip.
