Carnaval San Francisco 2014
Carnaval San Francisco 2014 was just last weekend and let us tell you…It’s a feathery hit year after year! Hundreds of thousands of residents, tourist and revelers hit the streets of San Francisco Memorial Day weekend to help celebrate it’s 36th anniversary!
Carnaval San Francisco is a beloved two-day event featuring a GRAND PARADE and a 2 day outdoor Festival in San Francisco Mission District, celebrating music and cultural elements from all of Latin & Carribbean American culture & traditions.
What we love the most about this event is the variety of cultures represented in the parades contingent! Included are feathered representatives from Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Mexico, Colombia, Trinidad, Cuba and islands throughout the Caribbean !
Needless to say… “WE LOVE FEATHERS!”. Ostrich Feathers, Rooster Feathers, Pheasant Feathers and Turkey Feathers are among the plumage used in these traditional and artful costumes!
