“¡Viva La Madre Tierra!”, celebrates Mother Earth’s prevalence in many cultures worldwide as the manifestation of the natural world. She is the life giver and the sustainer of life; from her womb she gave origin to all the plants, animals, and people. – www.carnavalsanfrancisco.org

Carnval Queen and King Collage

“…It’s fulfilling to see all the hard work put into Carnaval. It’s so exciting to see Sistas-Wit-Style come down the road with so much energy and excitement with smiles across our masqueraders faces — it brings so much joy… To prepare for Carnaval, Sistas-Wit-Style has been teaching free Caribbean dance classes to our Masqueraders every Saturday which are optional, our mas camp is open day and night for costume production… I would love to send special thanks to our designers at Sistas-Wit-Style; Annabelle Goodridge, Stephanie Dixon, Tiara Welch, Azer Moore. Our many volunteers and masqueraders as well because without them there would be no Sistas-Wit-Style…” – THE OFFICIAL NEWSLETTER OF CARNAVAL SAN FRANCISCO –– DIGITAL EDITION
