Chinese New Year - Jacksonville Style

We had a break in the rain just in time for the Chinese New Year parade on Saturday, Feb 13th. Southern Oregon isn't exactly crawling with Chinese culture but there was quite a bit more Chinese inspired marchers and themes than there has been in the past. Given that, you'll still notice some anomalies:


  1. Hey, at least there weren't llamas this year. I can't think of anything more un-Chinese than, except bagpipes.

  2. Personally, I like the Mexican dancers. The fiery red dresses are evocative of China. Somehow.
