  A baby Dalmatian...

Bring your costumes and frocks along!

An important reminder to those visitors to Madeira who arrive in time for the carnival: bring your costumes along!

A public carnival parade is held on Tuesday the 7th March. The best looking or most absurd fancy dressed participants can go on to win some spectacular prizes....

(Urr..., no, we do not know what those prizes will be).

But of-course it is the reverie and fun that will be the most precious of rewards for this unique day.

The popular street carnival for the locals to compete in costume dress takes place on the 7th March this year

For the participants in exhibitionist mode the more ephemeral prize of public adulation will be inebriating. Just wipe clean those mothballs off of that short frock before you participate. And do behave.

Where to go while the parade is not on?
Try several places: Copacabana at the Carlton Park Hotel, Vespas in front of the harbour, the discotheque Farol in the Pestana Carlton Hotel, or just mingle into the many smaller clubs and bars in and around Funchal.
