Carnival in Playa de Aro 2016

Карнавал в Плайя де Аро 2016

Carnival in Playa de Aro 2016.

On February 6, 2016, a traditional noisy event took place on the central street of Playa de Aro – the carnival, practically, the central event of the year!
Local residents taking part in the carnival begin to prepare for it in advance, come up with and sew bright, memorable costumes, build a  carnival carts of incredible design.
If they would have done it in May, when the streets are warm and green, then it would be priceless! But since the carnival takes place in Playa de Aro in winter, you have to dress warmer, take something containing alcohol to keep warm inside(the doctors recommend!) and rush quickly to the city. To park a car on this day is quite a difficult task, as well as finding a better place to watch the carnival procession.
Let’s finish talking and let’s see what happened there!
