Asian Heritage Street Celebration 2: Dancers and Fighters



On a Golden Gate Avenue stage directly in front of the Federal building, two children were dancing what I assumed to be a traditional Filipino dance...



...illustrating a fisherman with a net snaring his catch...



...and though they both look terrified to be performing before a crowd, they couldn't have been more charming.



On Eddy Street, Chinese dragons were holding court...



...at the site of mats laid down on the road for martial arts competitions.



There were fighting branches from all cultures...



...which seemed to be where the white/Asian multiculturalism was seriously taking place.



I have no idea what "heritage" the girl above claims, but she certainly knew how to kick ass in her age and weight category.
