Carnival 2014 - Vivacious dancers, kaleidoscopic parades and uber-cool dogs

17 February 2014

Carnival, the festive season preceding the season of Lent, is marked by gaiety, celebration and parades. Masquerades, street parties and thumping music characterise the processions as streets turn into spectacles of colour.

Carnival is usually celebrated in places with a Catholic majority with the exception of the Philippines, which has borrowed its rituals mostly from neighbouring Asian countries.
