Carrasciali Trinitaiesu | Carnival in Sardinia

All around the world people are gearing up for the biggest party on the planet – Carnival. It’s already started here, in Sardinia, Italy. Last night kicked off the beginning of Carrasciali Trinitaiesu.

The 2000 locals finally free from winters wrath, dusted off their masks, put finishing touches on floats and cars, filled up thermos’ of wine, beer and liquor and they hit the streets for Carrasciali Trinitaiesu 2012.

Finally blessed with beautiful warm sunshine which brought out smiles and laughter from young and old alike. The techno beats kept the kids moving and the bootleg Sardinian red helped the adults forget winters harsh cold.

Fairies, berries and confetti too.

Are you celebrating Carnival? What are your customs?

    I love how in one picture you’ve got people wearing lots of heavy jackets then in the next people wearing what looks like nothing but I assume somehting like tights.

    So what’s the weather like???
