25th to March 5th. 2014
over 100 years, Sitges has been celebrating Carnival. Sitges goes crazy
with activity. In fact, its often said that Sitges Carnival is the wildest
pary on Earth, and certainly, if you've been to it, you'll know why. The
two most important moments of Sitges Carnival are the Rua de la Disbauxa,
or the Debauchery Parade, on Sunday night and the Rua de l‘Extermini, or
Extermination Parade, on Tuesday night. Some forty-odd floats with more
than 2,000 participants leave a jam-packed Sitges completely awe stricken.
Sitges Gay Carnival is a series of events including Noche de
las mantillas - traditional Spanish head wear worn at weddings & funerals,
Noche de las touristas - Tourists night & Noche de las viudas - Widows
night. If you've never been, although it can be pretty cold, so bring a
cardie, it's actually when Sitges is at it's busiest. All of the bars,
restaurants, shops etc., open during carnival.
