CANCUN  CARNIVAL DAILY CULTURAL ACTIVITIES

 

The festivities of Carnaval peak with 3 nights of lively, colorful parades that include harem girls, butterfly stiltmen, dance groups, and individuals in costume having fun and enjoying the festivities. All day long before the parades, groups are dancing on Cancun downtown traffic is snarled and there's excitement in the air! Tradition of the past holds that Carnavaleros exchange flowers and candies with the parade watchers however, it seems the Mardi Gras beads are becoming very popular as well! Carnavaleros are rushing to get into costume to participate in the parade while crowds begin to line the streets hours in advance securing their own great view of the parade antics.

So many Cancunenses have been participating for so many years in Carnaval that these events can get very serious....in a fun sort of way of course! A typical group consists of at least 40 dancers, male and female, and often times even more. Everyone takes the dance and costume contests very seriously and many months of preparation go into both. The competition is good spirited and everyone gets to be on display in the parades that follow so there are only winners at these events!
