Once again, via David Yu

You know, a lot of people travel great distances to see the Carnaval, so why not you too?

“The Carnaval San Francisco Parade is always the 4th Sunday in May on Memorial Day Weekend – May 29, 2011 – Begins at Bryant & 24th at 10AM and heads up the Mission Street to 17th…”

All right, see you there!

And here are a few shots from Carnavals past:

Rei e Rainha do Carnaval 2009? Well they certainly looked the part, anyway.

¡Irmandade! Sisters doing it for themselves:

Capoeira, as seen on Meet the Fockers

She has the rare Blood Type “C”:

Samba com criança:

Mack Daddy:

I Dream of Jeannie, or 48 Jeannies on 24th Street, or something:

Sadly, these Jeannies weren’t followed by phalanx of Major Nelsons

Mi Chevy y tu Chevy. “SICKT FO” = 1964:

Puertas de tijera – ahora mas que nunca. Will scissors doors work on my heretofore bLand Cruiser? If so, I’ll take four, plus another one on the tailgate – why not?

You’d think Zorro would have a Nissan Z-car but he makes do with his Celica and some tape.

It sure looks that way. But this is a shot of Chewie during the recent Carnaval in the Mission district of San Francisco.
