February 29th Friday at de Young was magnificent moment as the noble blood of the Carnaval community was ascendant. Not since California Midwinter International Exposition of 1894 had so much regally  splendored  royalty graced the spot as 22 contestants competed with moves, music, and magic to win the judges favor.
