  • Description

    Viareggio, Italy.

    No item titles for this story, however, the description in the paperwork reads: "CARNIVAL TIMES HERALD - Viareggio rivals Nice with it's magnificent Carnival - first of the season."

    L/S's and M/S's of several large floats with numerous people in a variety of beautiful fancy dress costumes. The floats are spectacular including one with is made up like an old fashioned style galleon, it has large model birds attached to the front which flap their wings as the float moves by.

    L/S of people dressed in very tall costumes (they have large horns and look like the devil). Bizarre float moves down the street which appears to be a huge Indian chief with massive head-dress (it also has two propellers on it's shoulders !), people dressed as Indians stand on it's shoulders dancing. Crowds line the streets, there is a real party atmosphere.
