Next was a humble hand pulled cart with a drummer inside backed by lavish banners. Surrounding that drum cart were other folks playing cymbals and small drums.

The parade ended with the arrival of the longest and most dramatic dragon of the parade. It was lit from inside and moved slowly back and forth across the street, first thrilling one side, then the other.

The huge, long tail of the dragon passed by last. It's internal lighting created a lovely, dramatic scene.

A video of the last dragon of the parade. Here we show the tail as it winds its way down Market street, sadly bringing the parade to a close.
