Description

Fiestas of the Carnival of Águilas

Full of colour from the processions of masks, groups, the releasing of the 'la musona' and the 'egg battle' between the followers of Don Carnaval and Doña Cuaresma.

Although there are parades up to Carnival Tuesday, the big day is Sunday, when each comparsa carnival band presents its new fancy dress. That night also marks the inaugurations of the peñas, premises where food, drink and humour will reign for three days. The Saturday before Carnival Sunday, the opening ceremony and a paper fancy dress competition are held. On the Saturday, a discussion between Sir Carnival and Lady Lent takes place and ends -inevitably- in a battle of eggs full of confetti.
