Carnival Festivities (Cartagena) Aug 28, 2008
The Carnival festivities has deep popular roots in Cartagena especially in the second half of the 19th Century, which were truncated when they were prohibited at the end of the Civil War. With the restoration of democracy and especially from 1981, this secular festivity was recuperated, currently, it is one of the most important in the local festivity cycle. During its celebration parades take place as well as dances, costume and chirigota (carnival ensemble singing satirical songs) contests that increase each year in participation by Carthaginians and visitors.

Las fiestas de Carnaval tuvieron en Cartagena un profundo arraigo popular-sobre todo en la segunda mitad del siglo XIX- que se vio truncado cuando se prohibieron a la finalización de la Guerra Civil. Con la reinstauración de la democracia y especialmente a partir de 1981, se recuperó esta fiesta profana que, en la actualidad, es una de las más importantes del ciclo festivo local. Durante su celebración tienen lugar desfiles, bailes, concurso de disfraces y de chirigotas que cada año ven incrementada la participación en ellos de Cartagena y visitantes. A ver si os animais.
