One of the brightest annual events in Cyprus! A colorful lively celebration filled with music, dance and fun for all ages.
Festivities start on ‘Stinky Thursday’ with the Carnival King entering the city, decorated for the occasion (3 March 2016). On Sunday, March 6th, the youngest participate in the Children’s Parade on the sea-side road and then the Serenaders’ shows become the focus of the event.
During the 10-day celebrations many hotels and clubs organize fancy-dress parties and the whole town dances to the rhythms of the Carnival. Sunday, 13th of March is the climax, when the Grand Carnival Parade takes place. Decorated floats and groups of fancy-dressed people, singing and dancing, move along the Makarios III Avenue in Limassol and everybody, participant or viewer, gets in on the act and shares the fun!
