Carnivale 2008

Happy dancer

It’s Memorial Day Weekend, and in San Francisco’s Mission District, and that means Carnivale. For a few hours crowds line Mission Street to watch as hundreds of dancers representing dozens of groups strut down the street in colorful native costumes and levels of dress (or undress as the case may be). The sun shone down on stilt walkers, drum lines, local politicians, and the occasional low-rider; quite a change from last year’s overcast and windy affair.
