Waves of color swept through the Mission District Sunday during the Carnaval San Francisco Grand Parade. Thousands of spectators joined in the celebration as ornately costumed dancers, performing musicians, and decked-out cars brought noise and life to the streets. The Grand Parade is the culminating event for the two-day Carnaval festival that celebrated its 36th year May 24-25.
International music and food, a King and Queen competition, and a celebration of the upcoming 2014 World Cup in Brazil were also festival highlights.
