LatinCouver presents Carnaval Del Sol 2013 – Saturday and Sunday, July 6th & 7th

Carnaval del Sol is an energy-filled street festival and Latin American showcase along the main drag of downtown Vancouver’s famed entertainment district. Taking up four city blocks along Granville Street, the event now its in 5th year will feature a two day street festival, a world cup-style street soccer tournament and a new evening portion “Carnaval Overtime” with Latin-themed events and promotions in restaurants and entertainment venues for all-night partying on the strip.

With 40,000+ people expected along the pedestrian-only zone, this is BC’s largest Latin American festival, family-friendly and a proudly green event supported by the Mayor of Vancouver. Carnaval del Sol is gearing up for a bigger, better fiesta and look forward to all the things that Latin American plazas are famous for – music and dance, family-oriented games, delicious food, sports and plenty of entertainment for all ages.
