Carnaval 2018 Day One

Camino(s) past & future
As Cancelas is filled with children in costume even as it opens.

Band and parade leave Praza do Toural at 8 p.m. with over 100 marchers. Galician witches with brooms (and a couple of Warlocks) dominate, but pirates also abound. Women up to about age 80 are dressed in red/pink dresses with crinoline roses and dance along to the band, but a single girl about eight dominates in her Wonder Woman costume! The next generation has arrived.

A bit of rain did not stop THIS parade.

Tenerife is the spectacle for Carnaval. The hospitalera headed out this afternoon for her vacation there. She plans to buy all the costumery there; her suitcase is too small to take it.

Day Two

Rain has curtailed outdoor activities, but the concert at the Treatro was spectacular. An hour and a quarter of vibraphone by a comedy group of four had children and adults on their feet. The orchestra was 170 years of tradition.
