Chinese lions that couldn’t wait for Chinese New Year did their Chinese lion thing down Grant Avenue on Saturday to kick off a festival that tries just as hard as its big brother to be fun and frantic. It was the opening day of the weekend Autumn Moon Festival and thousands of festivalgoers crowded shoulder to shoulder amid the booths, dancers, beauty queens and vendors on Grant Avenue, there being no other way for thousands of people on Grant Avenue to fit. Greg Wai, whose job was to be at the front end of a two-man costumed lion that danced its way down the thoroughfare, said it’s a big responsibility to be a lion’s head.
