Carnavales de Cadiz 2004 (21-29th February)
Just the best, so enjoyable ... even if you are a foreigner, the people includes j you in your festival ..., once you go, you will miss all your live.
In my first year, I did not understand very well, the meaning of the songs or the festival, i could not understand how in a week, everybody can change so much, but that’s is Cadiz, all the year, they keep on thinking on the carnivals ... this photo is from the Falla Theatre.
CARNAVALES DE CADIZ, lo mejor donde son bienvenidos todo el mundo, la gente te involucra en su fiesta. El único problema es que crea adictividad, yo seré toda mi vida adicta a sus carnavales, jajajjaja. Al principio no entiendes sus canciones, te confunden las chirigotas, los cuartetos, etc... pero poco a poco le coges el truquillo.

Cadiz's Carnival is famous in Spain.
It is celebrated during 1 whole week at the end of February, 40 days before the Easter.
From one friday to the next sunday, all that week is holiday in Cadiz, it is indeed the main local festivity, and many people prepare for the Carnival all year long (and I'm not exaggerating!). They prepare the costumes, disguises, reherseal with their singing amateur groups, write the lyrics of satyrical songs...
All through this 9 days you can find at every street of the Old Town people in disguise (mostly by night), groups singing (specially on sundays around the Central Market), private and public parties and many many many people everywhere. It's a Carnival to be lived on the streets!
The best weekend to go is the first, as people are not as tired as the 2nd weekend (after the whole week partying, LOL)
