2012: Year of the Dragon!

Happy Lunar New Year, from StoryCorps San Francisco!

The team had a table at the Oakland Museum’s annual Celebration of the Lunar New Year and Other Asian Traditions. The family event welcomed 2012, the year of the dragon, with a plethora of fun activities and special performances throughout the day. The colorful, lively party included an opening ceremony with a dragon parade, a mochi pounding demonstration, face-painting and calligraphy, and many tasty treats to sample.

At our table, attendees learned more about StoryCorps in the Bay Area by answering two questions on post-its: What is your earliest memory? and What are you most proud of?
We got many wonderful responses from party-goers of all ages! Check out our pictures from the day’s happenings below.

Happy Year of the Dragon!

Please note: The mochi pounding demonstation video was shot by our own San Francisco staff.
