San Francisco's Chinese New Year's parade is this Saturday! Leigh Glaser introduces you to the float makers and finds out what is so special about them.

Leigh Glaser visited San Francisco's Pier 27 to meet with some of the float makers of the Southwest Airlines Chinese New Year parade .

The parade takes place Saturday, February 23 in San Francisco and begins at 5:30pm.
