Super Bowl 50 is being held just south of San Francisco this year in the city of Santa Clara. Even though kick-off isn’t until Sunday, the pre-game festivities are in full force. Up to a million people are expected to pour into the Bay Area throughout this week for concerts, street festivals and fireworks shows.
