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.

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. 😊
