Hey everyone! If you are looking for a fun party (that happens to be a week long) then you’re in luck because the Barcelona Carnival is upon us. Starting February 20th and lasting until February 26th, Carnival is a great time to let loose. 

Tradition

Carnival is a week long party to prepare for the Christian holiday of lint. People use this time to get their fill of craziness before they have to give it up for lint.
