Gung Hay Fat Choy (Happy Chinese New Year!)

February 8, 2016 marks the celebration of the Chinese New Year and the start of the Year of the Monkey.

Last year, Craft in America filmed San Francisco’s Chinese New Year parade, celebrating the year of the Sheep/Goat/Ram. We also filmed with lion artist and dancers in San Francisco. To view the segment:
