Winter “Karneval”.

We were told that the Kotor Winter “Karneval” has been celebrated now for over a century. It’s celebrated each year during the last week of February into March.  The festivities  include a masquerade ball, musical concerts, children’s activities, a parade, traditional costumes & local cuisine.


Let’s join in on the fun!


Look who joined in as well after a few beers! IMG_5480.JPG


The parade was fun and was held on the last day as part of the closing ceremonies.

In the evening two groups were brought in for the entertainment, one from Italy that played traditional music & songs. This group was awesome and got everyone off their feet! We felt right at home! I would go see this group again in a second. The name, “Terraross”. fullsizeoutput_2675

The second group was from Croatia and the main singer definitely had similarities to  “Tom Jones”. He actually did a few of Tom Jones’s songs in the Croatian language. Name, “Goran Karan”.  Awesome singer!

Well the evening & festivities ended on a good note, with a shot of “Rakija”. Remember, it gets rid of bad bacteria. 😊
