Autumn Moon Festival – San Francisco – Chinatown – Jing Mo drummers and dragon

September 14, 2016

The Autumn Moon Festival was held last weekend, Saturday and Sunday, September 10th & 11th. I happened to be in the vicinity and just literally caught tail end of the Jin Mo dragon and drummers parade on Grant Avenue near Broadway, heading south towards Washington. The dragon was moving very quickly, and due to the very large throngs on the sidewalk I was unable to get around and do any front shots. The drumming was very exciting and energetic (I was standing right back of the main drummer here) and everyone enjoyed watching the dancing movements of the dragon. Note the group costumes as well. The throng way up ahead is huge, but hard to see in these images. Sorry I was not in a good spot or would have taken more, I was not aware that there was a festival going on until I got out of my cab on the way to my Sunday gig. Better two images than none at all!
