Just a short drive from Cabo San Lucas, the city of La Paz transforms into a vibrant and colorful center of celebration for the annual Carnaval La Paz each spring. This year's theme, "EL Juego de la Vida (the Game of Life), promises to delight young and old with an array of fun activities and fabulous entertainment. Unlike typical Mardi Gras celebrations, Carnaval La Paz is a family friendly event that invites all ages to get into the spirit of celebration.
Kick off the festival at the "Burning of Bad Humor in Effigy" event. Enjoy colorful parades filled with outrageous costumes, sparkling beads and creative floats, including the always-beautiful Queen's Float.
Enjoy music from local and national artists like El Tri, Alex Lora and Banda Carnaval. Watch exciting dance performances and comical stage acts. Or check out the Children's Carnaval for a special kids' parade, junior carnival rides and kid friendly entertainment. And you can always fill up on authentic festival foods like tacos and margaritas.
The fun at Carnaval La Paz lasts from February 26th through March 4th, 2017. Visit http://www.eventsloscabos.com/event/carnaval-in-mexico-carnival-2017-02-26/ for details, entertainment line-up and ticket information.
