Members of the Immortals lion dance group run to keep their colorful creature moving down Hill Street during the 2011 Golden Dragon Parade in Chinatown.

On Saturday, crowds descended on Chinatown for the 112th edition of the Golden Dragon Parade, an event that got its start in 1898.

The 2011 event celebrates the start of the Year of the Rabbit, and the animal was a feature in several parade floats.

The parade is the centerpiece of a two-day festival that includes food, music, dancing, games and a car show.
