The people of Alava have an ample range of carnivals to choose from. In Vitoria-Gasteiz, for example, carnival begins on “Jueves Gordo” (Lardy Thursday), when various children choirs of the city perform.
But it is at the weekend that the carnivals reach their peak, with the popular disguise competitions and the mass krewe parades.
The festivities draw to a close with the burial of the sardine, which takes place in Plaza Nueva.
