At this time of year Spain celebrates a very popular party, CARNIVAL!!
It is always celebrated in schools; children usually have a themed dress up day and parade for their parents to see them, as well as a free dress up day for them to wear something from home.
Many Areas near to Orihuela Costa hold a program of activities for all to enjoy, so we thought we would list a few that may be of interest

In this town, the festivities are already underway, carnival began on January 28, but the most enjoyable days of the colorful shows are the 19th and 25th of February.
The Carnival Parade Contest was held on the 19th, but this Saturday, the 25th February, it is Carnival Day. A Great night parade is organised and starts at 22.00 hours in the Plaza Maria Asuncion, and ends at Patricio Perez Street.
