The Cyprus carnival, a poorer cousin of the brazil carnival, starts today. All the cities have their own schedule for the same. The start of the carnival, with the arrival of the King of the parade will happen in the Limassol downtown area tonight. The parade will start from the Town Hall at 7.00p.m. and will pass by the following streets: Themidos, Anexartisias, Ayiou Andreou, Karaiskaki (Municipal Library), Stasinou, Andrea Drousioti. It will end at the Heroes Square where carnival merrymaking with songs and dancing will take place. Fireworks from the Town Hall start at 7.00 p.m.
Last year’s theme was “Love”. Also, the girls-in-red are a common feature every year. They are the ones who accompany the King Carnival.
