We walked into the town this evening to watch the local carnival procession. It was great fun and most of the costumes were homemade. There was cash prizes for the best costumes, and lots of people in the crowd were dressed up as well.
It was all very friendly and loud as each group had their own music and dance routine. Competitors kept spotting friends in the crowd, so there was lots of shouting and kissing going on.
Happy Valentines day - yes, they do celebrate it in Spain too.
