The Carnival Parade in Torrevieja is almost a must on our calendar but this year we have missed it. There are two parades, one in the afternoon and one at night. The night parade starts at 10pm so we normally would go to the daytime one but that took place last Sunday when we were otherwise engaged.
Reading about it in the Coast Rider, it sounds like this year’s parade lived up to the usual high standard with 30 comparsas taking part. It was apparently very cold though, especially for those dressed in next to nothing. I expect performing the elaborate dance routines helped to warm the participants up a little but it would have been cold for us standing there for over four hours.
