San Francisco Carnival

Taken during the May, 2008 Carnival in San Francisco's Mission District.

The costumes are Punjabi, Bhangra.

Bhaṅgṛā (Punjabi, Hindi, IPA) is a form of music and dance that originated in the Punjab region of India and Pakistan. Bhangra began as a folk dance conducted by Punjabis to celebrate the coming of Spring, or Vaisakhi. Today, bhangra survives in different forms and styles all over the globe – including pop music, film soundtracks, and even collegiate competitions. - Wikipedia
