San Francisco Carnaval Grand Parade
San Francisco Bay Area Carnaval (Carnival) was conceived 36 years ago by a group of local musicians, artists and residents eager to bring the spirit of Latin American and Caribbean culture to San Francisco. In the great Western hemisphere Carnaval season begins in February, but since in San Francisco the weather in February is typically wet and cold, the city celebrates Carnaval in May. The four Carnaval Cities with the greatest influence and presence in the San Francisco Carnaval are the Brazilian cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador as well as Port of Spain, Havana, Cuba, Trinidad and Oruro, Bolivia.
