San Francisco’s 41st annual Carnaval celebration is shaping up to be a party like no other. Over 400,000 people are expected to line in the streets to enjoy dancing, drumming, live music, brilliant costumes, delicious food and artistry. Don’t miss the Grand Parade, which kicks off on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. The parade begins at the corner of 24th and Bryant streets, then proceeds west to Mission Street, heads north on Mission to 17th Street, turns east on 17th Street and concludes at South Van Ness Avenue. The spectacular costumes and floats will take your breath away, and the infectious samba rhythms will have your whole family dancing in the streets.
