Chinatown shop owners lit firecrackers in front of their stores to scare off evil spirits and San Francisco's Mayor Ed Lee placed lucky ribbon on a ram to usher in the Lunar New Year during the annual Chinese New Year kickoff celebration Thursday, February 19th, 2015 as the year of the Horse came to an end. The annual procession will began at Walter Lum Place along Clay Street to Kearney and ended with traditional Lion Dancers and firecrackers at the Hilton Financial District Hotel. This year's festivities included Lion Dance by Asian Peace Officers’ Lion Dance Team, Golden Dragon and Water Snake Dance by Community Youth Center and singing by the Children’s Choir from Chinatown Community Children’s Center. 2015 is the Year of the Ram which is part of a 12-year-cycle of animals that make up the Chinese zodiac.
