Music meshed with voices and percussion instruments during Carnaval San Francisco's 40th anniversary celebrations in the Mission District.
Tied to the Caribbean, Central and South America, the event is a place for people to celebrate their heritage through dance, music and food.
The festival started Saturday, with vendors and performers taking over Harrison Street, from 16th to 24th Streets. The parade itself took place Sunday morning, with groups arriving at staging areas along Bryant Street before marching down 24th Street to Mission.
