Nerja has had uninterrupted sunny weather for weeks and it looks set to continue – that includes the Nerja Carnival
Nerja on the Spanish Costa del Sol is a great place to be at any time of the year, let alone during the Carnival. There are plenty of events throughout the year held in and around the town of Nerja.
The Nerja carnival goes on for 3 or more days. It’s one of the best festivities in Nerja. This year you can join the party from Thursday 20th of February until Sunday 23rd of February.
The first day they choose the “King” and the “Nymphs” of the carnival. They are chosen in a marquee located on “Plaza de España”.
The second day is the most important day. They hold a large parade full of floats and people who dress up. The locals work on their costumes for months on end and this is their moment to shine. This parade goes through the centre of town and finished at the same marquee on “Plaza de España”.
The last day they hold another parade, where they pay their respects to “Chanquete”. This parade is very different from the other one because everybody dresses in black and some of the participants cry a lot during the parade.
