Mardi Gras is celebrated in Mexico as part of a bigger holiday, known as Carnaval. Carnaval time in Mexico is an often frenzied craze of fun and frivolity. Carnaval is the last chance for Mexicans to enjoy carnal pleasures right before the 40 days of Lent. Festivities run from February 26 through March 4 this year. Carnaval is a fun time; very festive and perfect for celebrating in your own backyard. After all, there’s no place better than home to celebrate with friends and family!
Carnaval is celebrated widely in Mexico, the best festivities being in Mazatlan and Veracruz. Mazatlan is known to attract more than 300,000 visitors at this time of the year. In total, Carnaval is significant in about 225 communities in Mexico; many of these, especially in the smaller communities maintain elements from Mexico’s religious and indigenous heritage. The modern version of Carnaval in the city of Veracruz is not as old as Mazatlán’s but it is larger, lasting nine days with six major parades with floats along with large public concerts, parties and special events and promotion in just about all the city’s restaurants, bars and nightclubs.barsand nightclubs.
