The parade began at the Civic Center at 1:00 p.m., proceeded up Polk to Post Street, and ended in Japantown. A number of performers from Japan also graced us with their presence. Japanese classical (Buyo) and folk dance (Minyo) groups representing the Bay Area performed throughout the parade route like a myriad of floating butterflies.
Highly honored Boy Scout Troops from the Japanese American communities marched proudly along the streets. Streams of colorful floats carried by young women representing Japanese American and other Asian American communities.
