Over the weekend, we went to San Francisco Chinatown for the annual event of the Flower Fair to celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year. This festival always takes place on the weekend before the lunar new year. It had a festive atmosphere in which families came to buy their Chinese new year flowers and snacks while enjoying traditional Chinese food, dance, music, and cultural displays. The streets in China town were blocked off from street traffic. I could not believe it was packed with people everywhere. The news reported that including both residents and visitors, attendance at the two day fair was estimated to be about 400,000.
