Gum Lung, the 250-foot golden dragon of Chinatown’s Lunar New Year Parade, is currently on display in a storefront at 1 Kearney St.

A team of more than 100 men and women from the martial arts team White Crane carry the dragon through the streets of San Francisco during the Chinese New Year Parade, a San Francisco tradition that started shortly after the Gold Rush.

This year’s parade will occur from 6 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 11. It will start on Market Street at Second Street and continue along a route that can be found at ChineseParade.com.
