This weekend it is all about the Carnival! The streets of the Costa Blanca and the Costa Calida will be shaking to the rhythm of the music as the groups parade in their sumptuous costumes of sequins, and feathers. The biggest and best Carnival Parade is in Aguilas, but the ones in Cartagena and Santiago de la Ribera are also well worth enjoying, as are other smaller ones which might be more local to you.
