Sitges Carnival is a wild, colourful 'Mardi Grass type carnival. More than 40 floats filled with beautiful people, fancy dressed and wild costumes. All people dance and party around the streets and most of them dress up with fun costumes.

The carnival has two special parades due to be on Sunday and Tuesday; the Rua de la Disbauxa and the Rua de l‘Extermini respectively. In Tuesday afternoon, children in fancy dress & costumes used to have their own parade.

Although the carnival is in winter, it is considered one of the hottest party in Catalunya, however, dress warm! (gloves, leggings, and many layers as possible). Also it is a good idea have a reserve of hot drinks and some with a bit of liquor.
