Carnival in Vilanova i la Geltrú
Every year, Carnival is unique in Vilanova i la Geltrú, yet it maintains the traditional features that have made it last for 300 years.
In Vilanova i la Geltrú, carnival lasts for a week. It starts on Fat Thursday, but the highlight is the arrival of His Majesty King Carnestoltes on the Friday. He appears in a different place in the city every year and is followed by a parade of floats. When the parade reaches the town square, the Sermon is given and this is the beginning of a fun-packed festival that lasts until Ash Wednesday. So, if you want to go, you have been warned. Be prepared!
