Carnaval de Loulé is the oldest and, probably, the most popular carnival in Portugal.
This massive street party has been held each year for over 100 years and attracts thousands of people to Loule to take part and to watch the parades of floats, dancers,musicians and performers. There are giant costumed characters, including humorous interpretations of national and international political figures, celebrities and sports stars.
The carnaval starts on Friday 1st March, with a day dedicated to children. The kids arrive for a day of fun, in costumes with their faces painted. The parades and festivities take place over three days - Sunday, Monday & Tuesday and there's a Grand Ball on the Monday night.
There's always a great atmosphere at this event - not to be missed!
The theme for 2019 is 'Circo Selfie' so expect lots of fun to made of our insatiable appetite for that perfect selfie.
