it's carnaval time!

every year on memorial day weekend san francisco celebrates carnaval with an elaborate parade, dancing, music, food and drink in the mission district. it's a huge celebration and tens of thousands of people turn out for the festivities... and that's what ya get this week: photos of carnival - the performers and the spectators...

(and please forgive the odd timing of this week's snaps... they are coming out on tuesday, three days early, 'cause i'm heading out on a little road trip to canada and i won't be back until the beginning of next week...)
