The music sets the beginning of the parade: the colourful joy and the rhythm of the participating groups motivates everyone. The streets of the serene city centre are filled with an endless revelry that you will never forget.
On Saturday night, thousands of tourists and residents come to Funchal city centre to watch the parade of floats, the main attraction of Madeira Carnival festivities. Over a thousand revellers participate dressed in striking costumes, dispersed over ten impeccably decorated allegorical floats. They parade to the sound of selected songs that were choreographed and rehearsed throughout the year, overflowing joy to the public.
