Mazatlan Condo Community Escondido Towers MODEL OPEN


We’re getting so close to Carnaval, Mazatlan’s biggest and oldest annual all-city celebration. The modern version of this pre-Lenten romp began here in 1988, but the tradition of whooping it up before Lent had its local origins in the early 1800’s. Mazatlán is one of the places that takes its carnaval very seriously and it’s certainly the largest carnaval in México. The goings-on last for nearly a week. This year, party time is from March 3 through 8. But pre-Carnaval doings actually begin well before the first of the year and include many events designed to rev up the excitement and anticipation before the main event.
This year’s theme is “The Return of the Muses”. These nine goddesses from Greek mythology were supposed to inspire the arts and sciences. How there figures will inspire the scenery for the shows and the dozens of parade floats remains to be seen. But you can be sure it will be spectacular. Carnaval always is.
There will be two parades along Mazatlan’s seashore street and there will be two fireworks displays. To top it all off, there will be a street dance at Olas Altas nearly a kilometer long, with bands of musicians spaced and intervals along the way. The dancing will continue every night of Carnaval. Fun times!
