Carnival, Cadiz: 17 reviews and 18 photos
All week long there is always something different to do and see.
On the First Saturday there is a Cabalgata (parade) and a kiddie pageant. the Goddess of Carnival is also elected.
On Sunday there is the Choirs mentioned before in Plaza Topete.
On the Monday or Tuesday you can see the burning of the God of Carnival (Momo) in Plaza San Antonio in the Evening.
Yes, there is a God of Carnival even though it sounds highly Pagan to me!!!! Momo is a figure made out of flammable material!
You can also see many of the Chrigotas from the Falla singing on the stage in the square.
If the burning of Dios Momo isn't enough for you then head to the Caleta beach to see the burning of a witch named Piti and fireworks. Don't worry the witch isn't real but a doll like Momo. The burning of Piti usually takes place on the second Thursday and marks the end of the official Carnival.
Though the next weekend the people take to streets dressed up to abuse their bodies further with booze! In fact the following Monday is a holiday called 'Hangover Day'.
