I will be attending but I'm debating on Cosplay. Since I live right next to Japantown in SF at the current moment. If anyone hasn't been who needs a hand in getting around I would love to be a tour guide. :3 I've lived here for almost 3 years.

I have never been to the Cherry Blossom Festival even though I lived in SF.
Definitely going this year though mainly to take pictures.

Ok so I've been to SF many times, but I have never been to the Cherry Blossom Festival or even Japantown. So if I'm able to make it out there then having a tour guide would be amazing! :D

No problem :3! Let me know if your looking for a buddy. My anime club is thinking about going to hang out as well so there will probably be more awesome people to hang out with.

Between that group, and the upwards of 200 folks that will do the parade on the 18th? I think you'll have plenty of people who will know the area and can get you comfortable with it!

I miss living in SF sometimes...and one of the things I do miss is being able to walk to both Japantown AND Chinatown (I lived off of the California cable car line for several years).

Thanks you two! That makes me feel a lot more comfortable about going especially because I don't know the area at all.

Well now I'm really excited about going! :D

I just need someone to point me in the direction of the food.
I'll be there to take pictures. Will people be cosplaying on parade day only or will I see people dressed up throughout the other days?

According to the new schedule that just came out at the nccbf.org site, the Food Bazaar is on Webster. There is also the stuff that is in the mall itself, but the Festival may make those places kind of busy because they are sit-down.

I recall seeing photos of people coming up that were for the festival but not for the parade, and on days that were not parade day, but I think the turnout is a lot smaller and you never know where you can expect to find them.

Woohoo! I do think you'll like it... I've found the parade to be a lot more relaxing in many ways than a convention. I'm geared up for it because I've had to skip the last two years (which was a bummer, but Real Life happens!).

Well, seems I am going both weekends of the CBF. ^^ I'll be there in the 11th and the 18th. :D Here's my planned cosplays:

11th: Bunny Lolita
18th: Kairi

If I don't have Kairi in time for the 18th, I'll be Konoka. :)

Well, you can expect a lot of good costumes :)

I found this on Google a little while back..posted it to Cosplay as well...it's a time-lapse film, about 30 seconds, of the parade as taken from the end of the walk, looking down Post Street near the Mall If you look to the back, you'll see a very big colorful group:  Those are the cosplayers:

As you can see...it's a lot of people, both in the crowd and in the cosplay segment.

Bah, I may have to pass on this since I'll be on business travel the week before the parade.  I won't be able to take part in the parade but I'll try to show up for fun on Sunday.

I'll show up in one of my Lolita outfits on Saturday the 10th. I'll also be wearing one of my Fanime Badges so people will recognize me from the forums easier ^^

Hubby and I got a hotel room at the Kabuki this year for Saturday night on the 17th (woo!) so my hope is that Saturday for just civvy walking around, and Sunday the 18th for the parade. Not sure how long after the Parade we will stay after..it depends on how we feel (read: depends on how bushed the parade makes us!).

I've yet attended the Festival on a non-Parade day, so I'm really looking forward to that and actually finding some of the newer stores (I seem to keep having a problem locating them XD ).
