San Francisco's Annual Carnaval Grand Parade on Sunday, May 25, 2014
For over three decades, Carnaval San Francisco has been an event for many cultures to come together in one spirit to share their creative expression. It is a FREE festival in San Francisco’s Mission District over Memorial Day weekend that will showcase the very best Latin American and Caribbean cultural arts and traditions. Carnaval San Francisco is the largest multi-cultural celebration on the West Coast.
The Grand Parade on Sunday is a dazzling display of pageantry and color with great photo opportunities.
Date: Sunday, May 25, 2014
Meeting Time: 8:45 am to 9:00 am
Location: The intersection of 24th and Mission Streets - there is a BART station here which is a great way to get to the parade.
Parking: If you are planning to drive to the parade - be careful. There are spaces with no parking meters in which you can park without paying anything but if there is a parking meter, you will probably to pay to park - even on Sunday. I recommend that you read all the signs as well as all the information on the parking meter itself because they are all different. Tickets are expensive and you do not want to get one.
Cost: This is a FREE event.
