Cherry Blossom Festival 2008 San Francisco
I did, and I wasn't alone. A lot of people showed up ...
to look ...
to participate ...
to look and participate ...
The parade started at Civic Center
The parade went up Polk, left on Post and ended up in Japantown, at Fillmore.
The entire event was a lot of fun, very uplifting. There was a lot of giggling and happy sounds coming from the participants of all ages in the parade.
Why, even the Police looked pretty laid back.
By the way, here is a little movie I shot so you get a better idea. Sorry, no sound.
I didn't have my backpack that day, so I didn't fill up on Japanese snacks this time.
Oh, well, another time!
(1) (begin snark mode) Dear Camera Manufacturers, could you please make the buttons on the point-and-shoots a little smaller, because right now, we can still see them somewhat. (/end snark mode)
