San Francisco: Get in the Green Zone
With summer around the corner, it's no surprise that everyone is feeling green. Join in the celebration this weekend in the Mission, where you can experience the largest outdoor green event the city has ever had.
The annual Carnaval San Francisco, a festival and parade that showcases and celebrates all things Latin American and Caribbean, is introducing a new element to its festivities this year—the Green Zone (Zona Verde). Spanning 60,000 square feet, the Green Zone will have an Eco Village, which is all about sustainability, and a Holistic Health Pavilion, which focuses on things like yoga, massage, and acupuncture. There will be many demonstrations, as well as global healing ceremonies that include elements of Capoeira, Native American, Sufi, and Aztec dance. It should be a huge, and environmentally friendly, party—just what us yogis like!
The When: Saturday and Sunday, May 24 and 25, 10am-6pm (Grand parade on Sunday to leave from 24th and Bryant at 9:30am and head down Mission Street to the festival)
The Where: Harrison Street between 16th and 23rd streets
The Price: Nada!
