  • Description

    Take 32,000 happy, shrieking, favour waving people. Many gaily coloured-mobile-allegorical floats, with grotesque giants and pretty girls. Students showering the crowd with confetti...add them together and you have the annual carnival parade at Viareggio, Italy, filmed by VISNEWS Jan 25.

    As the bizarre procession wends its way through the palm tree lined waterfront boulevards, women laugh at the huge four poster bed...children shrink back from giant gesticulating monkeys...men admire curvacious mermaids...policemen wish it would end.

    Claimed to have the finest carnival parade in Europe, Viareggio certainly lived up to its reputation this year.
