Carnival is also celebrated in Ibiza. Here they celebrate Carnival with a beautiful parade.
This parade is taken very seriously. Local schools, associations and dance schools have rehearsed their own choreography to popular music.
The parades that are held are always very colorful and the judges have their hands full choosing the most creative and original entry. In fact, Carnival is one of the most vibrant events on any islanders calendar we believe.
The island is alive with music during the Ibiza Carnival, and many restaurants, bars and nightclubs offer special entertainment. Many of the parades end at a point where live DJs wait to get the party started. Several indoor and outdoor concerts are also held, including performances by the City of Ibiza Symphony Band, live Cuban music from various bands, and live rock music concerts from various popular bands.
We were pleasantly surprised. Street performers, vendors of all kinds and fun activities and events can be found all over the island during the Ibiza Carnival. Usually in each town there is also an area set up with stalls to get yourself face painted, and other fun things for the younger visitors to enjoy.
