Carnival whoaa!!


Get ready for the Carnival, starting 19 february in Barcelona, and over all of Spain!  All districts hold their own parades, and the highlight is La Grand Rua de Carnaval, the big parade, that starts at Saturday 21 February 2009. There will be a party everywhere, and prepare yourself to by a wig or a fancy dress, and join the party!

A better Carnival is held  in Sitges, in the playground of Barcelona. It’s a resort south of Barcelona with a bohemian feeling over it. Hundreds of thousands Europeans and tourists will gather here to take part in the carnival, among them also me! The carnival starts with the arrival of the King Carnestoltes, The Carnival King, on Fatty Thursday and ends on the Ash Wednesday, with his funeral. Sitges is 40 km southwest of Barcelona, easily accessible by bus and train services from Barcelona.
