There's a lot to love about SF's fantastic Chinese New Year parade -- and a lot of love the parade as well. Marching for the fifth time in a row this year is API Equality, and LGBT advocacy group serving the Asian and Pacific Islander communities. And you can join them!

API Equality has put out an open call to anyone interested in joining their contingent. They're meeting up beforehand at 4:45 on February 7th, near Market and 2nd. (Dress in yellow and red, and look for contingent #39.) The parade starts at 5:30 and will, as always, be a blast.

If you'd like to join the festivities, RSVP via Facebook. See you there!
