4. Carnaval San Francisco
On Feb of 1979, performers, dancers and other fun people decided to start parading in uniforms and costumes. They drummed their way dancing and parading. They decided they will be the first San Francisco Carnaval. Ever since, the city has celebrated it annually. “The 2–day festival will be held May 25th and May 26th on Harrison Street between 16th and 24th Streets”.
