One of the most important events of local folklore is definitely the carnival of Valderice, which this year has reached its twenty-seventh edition and will take place from 28 February to 5 March 2019 with lots of fun for the joy not only of the little ones, but also of the adults.
The carnival, in fact, has always been a moment of euphoria even for adults who do not fail to disguise themselves and enjoy an atmosphere so lively that brings them back when they were young.
A few years there were parties at home, today the fun is on the streets with the evocative parade of allegorical wagons set up by local workers that will be Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 March from 17 onwards with musical performances in the square and the exhibition of dance groups disguised by the various local dance schools.
In the early afternoon of the fat monday the fun will be especially for the little ones with the eleventh edition of the "Silver Mask", while in the evening there will be the first edition of "Miss and Mr. Carnival of Valderice".
The carnival festival will end on Tuesday 5 March with lots of music and dancing in the square and with the award ceremony of the most beautiful carts.
An event that takes place for many years needs to be renewed and that is why it has been introduced another novelty with the first edition of the competition for participation in the carnival parades in Valderice 2019 that will reward the most spirituous allegorical chariot of the year .
The spirit of the carnival is precisely this, knowing how to represent the reality that surrounds us and the characters from the entertainment, politics or society in general who live there in an ironic, sometimes biting or farcical way.
Like every year the carnival of Valderice is also an opportunity to taste typical products such as couscous with pork and Spincie.
