The San Francisco Carnaval 2010 – “Colors of Sound, Splashes of Culture” is California’s largest multicultural celebration and is scheduled for this weekend – May 29 and 30 (Carnaval 2010 Photos)!  A San Francisco tradition for the last 32 years, Carnaval presents the best of Latin American and Caribbean culture, dance, music, art, and food.  The festival brings in thousands of spectators and showcases performances of Salsa, Samba, Reggae, Tango, Hip-Hop, Merengue, Calypso, Cha Cha Cha, Cumbia, and Mambo.

The Saturday festivities will run from 10am-6pm between 16th and 23rd streets on Harrison street.  The Grand Carnaval Parade starts Sunday morning at 9:30 on 24th and Bryant and goes out to 17th and Mission.  I’ll definitely be heading out to take pictures at the parade, scarf down some pupusas & tamarindo, and stalk Benjamin Bratt (the grand marshall of this year’s parade – watch the clip below)!
