African Outlet Experience at Carnival 2012 San Francisco, CA

May 29, 2012

This Year I joined African Outlet Experience at the 2012 Carnival Parade in San Francisco on May 27th. Had a wonderful time joining them by dancing as a villager girl and banging on a traditional bell called “oghene”. Taking this opportunity to share some of my experience with all these wonderful mostly new friends. What I mostly was able to capture with my little cell phone was Pre-Parade presence Starting with traditional African blessings. Managed to capture a couple of shots at the after-parade party too at their store on 524 Octavia st. (Corner of Ivy near Hayes St.) Big up to everyone on the African Outlet troupe and much thanks to all who made it out to Mission area to see the parade! Judah and Horgan of African Outlet, I can’t thank you enough for bringing Africa to us (of course getting us all involved in the positive magic you bring) and so much more color to our world.
