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.  The festivities include a masquerade ball, concerts, children’s activities, a parade, traditional costumes and tastings of local cuisine.

In the evening two groups were brought in for the entertainment, one from Italy. This group was awesome and got everyone on their feet! We felt right at home! 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 the Tom Jones repertoire 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. 😊
