With the cancellation of the annual Chinese New Year parade due to the pandemic, communities across the Sunset and Richmond districts are finding new ways to celebrate.
It is the Year of the Rat, meaning the Chinese zodiac is starting over. A Year of the Rat is a time for new beginnings, and though cleaning one’s house is a traditional way to commemorate the Chinese New Year, the Year of the Rat might be a time to clean up your life and make a fresh start.
Traditionally a two-week celebration, the Chinese New Year is celebrated in the
City during a variety of events.
