Corfu Carnival!

A venerable Corfu tradition is known as the Carnival or Ta Karnavalia. Venetian in origin, festivities include a parade featuring the main attraction of Karnavalos, a rather grotesque figure with a large head and smiling face , leading a diverse procession of colourful floats.Corfiots, young and old, dress up in colourful costumes and follow the parade, spilling out into the area’s narrow streets (kantounia) and spreading the festivities across the city,dancing and socialising. At night, in the island’s more sophisticated social circles, dance and costume parties are traditional.
