It’s Carnival season at Nerja! Join with friends and family to revel in the excitement of parades, elaborate costumes, and music. Various contests are scheduled, including the children’s costume contest and the “Ninfa y el Momo” contest on February 9, the grand parade costumes on February 10, and the costumes for the “Entierro del Chanquete” on February 11. This year there is an enticing array of prizes to be won, with generous amounts of prize money up for grabs! Among the Spanish festivals that occur throughout the year, none exude as much exuberance as the carnival. It stands out as one of the rare occasions where everyone can dress up and have fun without feeling silly.
