30 Jan-13 Feb 2005. The Catalan Carnival is famous the world over. The streets will be awash with colourful costumes, feathers boas and all the glitz the locals can muster, as individuals and organisations alike indulge in a manic bout of communal fancy dress. The climax comes on Saturday afternoons with a major procession called the Gran Rua de Carnaval that dances and jogs through the streets of Barcelona with hundreds of floats, coaches and dancing participants. The party atmosphere is sure to be carried from the streets into the citys famous bars and clubs carrying on the fiesta spirit well into the early hours. This years carnival aims to showcase the traditions of Barcelonas growing immigrant populations as well as those of the Catalan. There are numerous events to watch or participate in, like the tortilla competitions and spicy sausage tasting. There is a competition for the best carriage following Sundays parade along the Calle de la Creu Coberta with the winner taking home a prize.
