Did this: Mardi Gras Carnaval

The 11th annual Mardi Gras Carnaval in the Chinatown Arts District brought out crowds of festively dressed people to eat, drink and dance in the streets Tuesday evening. The free event featured food, drink, live music on four stages, parades and all the glitz and glitter that Mardi Gras is known for.

Later on in the night, the party moved to the Hotel Street nightclubs, with still more live music, and headlining DJ Sabo spinning hard-hitting Latin dance beats at NextDoor.
