Oh, The Fun Of Dressing Up

Our friend of ours from the local Banda de Música had been nervous all week long about the prospect of yesterday’s weather. It was to be Sa Rua time in Felanitx yesterday afternoon, and she had been agitated about the forecast of rain. Well, she needn’t have worried. The weather was fine on the day. The carnival in Felanitx got off to a splendid display of song and dance and Pomada (booze) and merriment, all under a glorious afternoon sun. By the time the carnival parade got underway in Manacor at 20h00, the sun had set but, the spirited parade there was equally impressive and imaginative.

Today, it will be Palma’s turn to celebrate the carnival parade for grown ups, starting as usual in La Rambla dels Ducs de Palma at 17h00, to continue down Carrer de la Riera, Carrer Unió, Plaça Joan Carles I, and finally Avinguda Jaume III and Passeig Mallorca. Plenty of floats are promised. It should be fun again and cheerful.

Next Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, when the Sardina will be buried in Mallorca’s pueblos. If you have not attended a Sardina‘s event yet, I would seriously recommend it. The going-on may seem strange at first but, the affair is also poetic, in a weird but wickedly wonderful way.

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: March 5th, 2011. The time was 15:59:17.
