Burial of the Sardine on last night of Carnaval, not to be missed. Don't forget to go as a grieving widow or dress in black, it is a funeral. The Saturday night dance and the Sunday afternoon parade and the fireworks after the sardine has been burnt are other highlights. Have a look at the photos of past Carnavals on this site. I went to my first one 15 years aog and have only missed one since, nothing like it in the UK. By my reckoning it should be 2 March following the past formula.
