The annual carnival parade happened two weeks ago in Limassol, Cyprus. The Cyprus carnival is not so “famous” as the brazil one, nevertheless it is a good sight to watch and is a popular tourist attraction in Spring. I didn’t watch the entire parade this year, it got a bit boring and monotonous after the first 2.5 hrs with every fifth group consisting of Cypriot guys dressed up as women with overtly plunging decolletes and obscenely big bottoms! I don’t know why Cypriot guys are so obsessed with cross-dressing particularly when it comes to the carnival season. But, the carnival fortnight as a whole is a festive time here and is a good time to be in Cyprus. Below are some of the photos from this year’s main carnival parade on Makarios Avenue in Limassol.
