Tripps Travel Network is recommending a visit to Mazatlán during Mazatlán’s International Carnival. This weeklong event features floats, parades and fancy costumes for visitors and residents alike to enjoy.
Also known as Mazatlán’s Mardi Gras, it is one of Mexico’s biggest and best festivals to attend and features thousands of costumed participants who stroll down the streets and on the beaches of Mazatlán.
Although the first carnival took place in 1848, the first Carnival Queen was crowned in 1898. The queen’s coronation takes place at the baseball stadium in town where guests can enjoy a concert, fireworks and be sprayed with confetti from confetti canons.
Tripps Travel Network recommends attending the Juegos Florales poetry contest as well, where spectators can enjoy listening to some of the best poets from around Mexico. Sonnets, free verse and more can be heard at this beautiful poetry contest.
For the more adventurous traveler, Tripps Travel Network invites visitors to take part in Olas Atlas, which is a large dancing party that lasts until 4 a.m. Dancing, singing and sound and light shows are all a part of the fun and excitement that the Mazatlán International Carnival has to offer. Travel experts know that anyone who chooses to visit Mazatlán during the Carnival is sure to have the experience of a lifetime.
