Latin-Americans together with the Caribbean community hold Carnaval by the end of May to celebrate their native cultures which were partially formed under the influence of Brazil, Bolivia, Cuba, and Trinidad and Tobago. The festivities take place on Harrison Street, namely between 16th and 24th Streets.
The festival lasts for two days. The first day offers traditional food specialties, music, and dance. The second day is largely about the Sunday’s Grand Parade. Performers have typical clothes decorated with lots of glitter and feathers. King and Queen of the parade look most exotic.
