Last night marked the end of Carnival. The crowds came out in numbers to watch the floats and dancers go by. The atmosphere hung steams of happiness and moments of crisis’ momentarily forgotten.
Devils, hippies and fairies oh my!
The floats were colourful and large with enough base to entertain the crowd for miles.
Wizards, dragons and gypsies danced to the excellent beat.
Always a political message strewn into the foray.
Dancing faeries happily pose.
A Rainbow mohawk on a kid named Spock.
Beautifully happy faces.
Where did you spend Carnival this year?
Looks like a blast!
Oh! I love the colours in the pictures!!!!
After such a gray and drab winter, it was nice to see these large splashes of colour.
Seems like a lot of fun. The last time I celebrated Carnival was in Cologne, which was awesome!
I am going have to find a Carnaval to go to next year! Great pixs!
It is a great time! I’d love to do Carnival in Rio!
I want to see this next year. 🙂
Sounds like a super plan!
I sent the link to your blog to my friend researching Sardinia 🙂
Wow! Thank you for sharing my blog. I hope it can help your friend out. If they have any questions … please ask.
I went to Carnevale in Viareggio today and took far too many photos, just like I did last year. These events are so much fun. I love the way families dress up and have a great time.
I love all the color!! The photos are beautiful and ALIVE!
