Chinese New Year celebrations came to San Francisco City Hall on Friday.

Leung's White Crane Chinese Lion Dancing Ensemble put on a show normally reserved for the city streets.

They performed the traditional lion dance to mark the year of the Rabbit. The annual Lunar New Year's parade takes place in San Francisco on February 19th.

It dates back more than a century and organizers say this is the largest celebration of Asian culture outside of Asia.
