This years Carnaval procession in Ribadeo took place on the 17th February. As always it was well attended and the participants had gone to a lot of trouble with their costumes and fancy dress. There were the usual charangas (groups playing kazoos) although the costumes this year seemed more elaborate than in past years. The whole procession took over an hour and a half to pass by, by which time most people were frozen and headed straight for the nearest bar!!
