A wild, colorful and noisy ‘Mardi Gra’ type carnival.
With over 300,000 party goers, at it’s height.

Often over 40 floats filled with beautiful people, young and old, of every persuasion,  scantily dressed in colourful, wild and fun costumes. Parading around the streets of Sitges. Most Sitgeans and visitors dress up in crazy and fun costumes to dance and party through the night.

Regarded by many, as one of Europe’s safest, wildest, street carnival.

Though rumbustious, the atmosphere is amazing with many people in fancy dress. Allowing the police to concentrate on marshaling the parade, which is behind a safety fence.   Beauties male, female, young and old wear inventive, colourful and sometime skimpy outfits. Whilst the drumming bands keep the crowd and dancers active well into the morning.

And many stay out right through to after dawn
