Carnaval events take place throughout the city, with the coronations at the baseball stadium, the parades along the malecón, fireworks at Olas Altas and along the malecón and the street party in Olas Altas. But there are plenty of Carnaval decorations and events other places, too.
The Plazuela Machado has a gigantic silver sculpture in one corner. In another corner a stage was being set up this afternoon. The kiosko is decorated with Carnaval flair – Pacifico style.
The malecón is closed at Zaragoza and there is fencing set up and of course ticket booths. Zaragoza is now two way between the water and Belisario Dominguez for the duration of Carnaval.
This morning I grabbed my camera and jumped on my bike to take some pictures for you, but unfortunately the batteries were dead so I’ll repeat the effort tomorrow.
Below is a schedule of the main Carnaval events. I plan on taking lots of pictures and trying to post every day with the latest.
