  • Description

    Bizarre, grotesque, fantastic, romantic -- call it what you will, the magic of the traditional carnival is always there. The Viareggio - Italy - carnival is one of the finest in the world.

    The most important of the parade are the floats, which are, for the most part, allegorical. They file away along the main streets and the water front.

    Large crowds gathered for the occasion and all were in Festive holiday mood. Pretty girls and handsome men and youths from the Viareggio region fancily dressed in costumes danced and sang on the floats as they parades by.

    The artisans of Viareggio are responsible for the design and construction of the floats and displays - and are justly proud of the laurels for the finest carnival parade in the world.
