Every year, people in Spain are excited waiting for carnival time.
Badajoz Carnival, in Extremadura, is one of the most important ones in Spain, due to the large amount of people that get involved and participate of this great festivity during day and night. It is not only popular amongst the locals but also the tourists since it has been declared as the Festival of National Tourist Interest.
It starts on Friday with the "Pregon" and finishes on Tuesday with the burial of the sardine (the closure activity), having the longest celebration on Saturday and Monday, when people celebrate all night long at the streets!
Be prepared for 5 days of festive cheer, colour and music take on the streets of Badajoz where you will see people dressed in all sorts of funky costumes made of net, felt, satin and other such materials. There are music troupes, locally known as ‘comparsas’, dressed up in costumes that participate in the Carnival Parade each year. This rhythmic and colourful experience is not to be missed!
On Saturday you'll find plenty of people dressed up in fancy costumes in different squares alongwith a contest for the best Carnival Costume on the streets of Badajoz, Murgas presentation and DJs to pump up the carnival spirit.
We have prepared lots of surprises to make your journy pleasant and joyfull! And we'll be giving away 1 prize of 50% off on your next experience with us & the club, among the attendees.
