Carnival Festivities 2019 next to Hotel Madeira
The main attraction of the Madeira Carnival Festivities is of course the colourful and lively allegoric parade.
On Saturday night (2nd of March) thousands of tourists and locals will be coming to the centre of Funchal in order to watch the Carnival Float Parade. This year it will have around 1.900 revellers, with flashy costumes and approximately ten exquisitely decorated allegoric vehicles.
During the Carnival period Funchal becomes the centre of several street entertainment initiatives, including music, shows, street parades and various performances. In Avenida Arriaga, a few steps away from Hotel Madeira, several stalls with the traditional food and drinks and various typical Carnival and Madeiran delicacies, will be open.
