The Venetian Carnival is a stylish party: beautiful dresses and suits, combined with the well-known white masks. From completely white with the perfect red lips to brightly colored and with enormous feathers, everyone wears one. Exciting yet somewhat mysterious...
The most famous carnival in the world can not be missed in this list. In Rio de Janeiro there are big street parties everywhere, and you certainly do not have a lack of samba music. Dance from one party to another, but do not miss the big parade. Literally the whole city is celebrating. An event you must have been once in a lifetime!
By locals the carnival in Basel is also called: The 3 best days of the year. During these days it is all about humor, but you can also enjoy beautiful performances and parades. Especially the masks that everyone wears are fan-tas-tic! This party is slightly different than usual.
In warm Mexico you will find the city of Mazatlán, home to the third largest carnival in the world. Not to miss are the two large parades that cross the 20-kilometer boulevard. Carnival in Mazatlan is one big color explosion!
If you don't want to travel far this year, Mardi Gras is the carnival event to go to in New Orleans, once taken by a French-Canadian explorer from Europe, from Italy to be precise. Take a look at one of the many parades, with beautifully decorated cars and cozy music.
It will be a party anyway! Which destination do you want to go to?
