Weekend Carnival Schedule

Carnival Schedule

Carnival season is about to come to an end, but not before plenty of other towns around the country join in the celebrations, and on the southern Costa Blanca, you have plenty of carnival events to choose from.

Of course, one other thing to keep in mind is that there may be restrictions to roads and parking in these areas, so if you plan to drive, set off a little bit earlier than usual, to allow plenty of time to arrive.
