Chinese New Year celebrations continue in S.F. today

'Year of Horse' festivities throughout Chinatown

San Francisco's two-week celebration of the Year of the Horse continues today with the Chinatown Community Street Fair.

More than 100 groups participated in last night's parade, including high school marching bands, martial arts groups, stilt walkers, lion dancers and acrobats with floats, elaborate costumes and firecrackers.

The fair runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday and features demonstrations of traditional Chinese arts including lantern and kite making, calligraphy, folk dance and puppet shows.

Also, there will be a stage for performances, which will feature dancers, acrobat and magic shows. About 500,000 people are expected to attend, organizers said.
