Viareggio's Crinival 2020!
From 1873 the largest folklore event
As every year, after the three cannon strokes from the sea, Viareggio welcomes millions of people with one of the biggest events in the world, filling the hearts of adults and children, between a masked parade and the other, for six days on the Viareggio Promenade.
Masks and cart of papier-mâché with satirical themes, up to 20 meters high, start from the famous Cittadella del Carnevale, come alive with music along with Burlamacco and Ondina, the main symbols of Viareggio and its much loved Carnival and parade all over the Promenade, involving all their audience ready to acclaim them.
… and as always, to conclude the last course in disguise, after the award ceremony of the cart of papier-mâché and their categories, from the beach, it will be possible to admire a wonderful fireworks show.
