CARNAVAL EN BARCELONA 2018:
CARNIVAL IN BARCELONA 2018:
Carnaval, carnaval…. ¡Carnaval, te quierooooo! (as the song says) If you are as keen on carnival as we are, take good note!
Fat or dirty Thursday (Thursday before Lent) is the fist day of the carnival cycle and there will be a big celebration in the city. As the tradition dictates, the King Carnival will enter in triumph in the afternoon, which is known as the Arribo (the arrival), together with his Prime Minister, his Seven Ambassadors with their attachés, music bands, flag bearers, Rodanxó and Rodanxona, the giants of Barcelona’s carnival… And all this will take place at Sant Jaume Square. From the City Hall balcony, the king of all lunatics will proclaim his one-week reign of party. It’ll be time to dance, for satire and big, big party. And after that, get ready for the for a pitch battle in orange, the ‘taronjada’, consisting of orange confetti, balloons and fireworks, followed by the first carnival soirée.
