Book a holiday home to experience the Carnival on Lake Garda
Book a holiday home for the carnival on Lake Garda which boasts years of tradition with the historical parades of Bardolino and the Carnival of Bacchus and Arianna, the Carnival parties in Arco, Bagolino, Manerba del Garda to name just some.
The traditions associated with the Carnival party are many and as always the parades of the wagons and masks, often also awarded prizes, can not be missed. For the streets of the various locations of the lake are held moments of entertainment for young and old, with inflatable kiosks selling pancakes and lettuces, music of all kinds. The Carnival then becomes a good opportunity to book a holiday on Lake Garda in a holiday home among those proposed by LagoVacanze.
The festivities during the Carnival period have a very distant origin, probably in pagan religious festivals, in which masks were used to ward off evil spirits. Today, however, is seen as a time of aggregation for families and children, who can not wait to wear the most unlikely and fun costumes. And at Lake Garda this tradition is never disregarded. How they never betray the marvelous displays and the allegorical wagons prepared in the different countries. Even the wagons have very ancient origins: in the past they represented the figure of a deity, such as Beauty, Grace, Justice, while today they are parading carrying figures in papier-mache that, in general, represent in an ironic way some events or current personalities.
Quest’anno il Carnival on Lake GardaFat Thursday begins on February 23rd, ending February 28th on Shrove Tuesday.
