San Francisco's Chinese New Year Parade has grown to become one of the largest in the world. Before seeing the parade be sure to make time for the street faire on Grant St. in Chinatown, which is a short walk from Montgomery BART station. You will find opportunities to learn kite and lantern making or try your luck at one of the booths to win prizes. When you get hungry from walking the long street fair go to R&G Lounge for fantastic seafood at this Chinese restaurant. Yank Sing is good choice for dim sum before heading to the fair.
