Ponce Carnival and other February events!

Ponce Carnaval 2017 will start Friday, February 24th and run through Fat Tuesday February 28th.

The Ponce Carnival (Carnaval de Ponce or Carnaval Ponceño, in Spanish) is an annual week-long celebration. There are parades with wildly decorated floats, crazy costumed people, lots of music, loads of spectators, and merriment.

Similar to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, it is derived from the old world tradition of a final celebration before the beginning of Lent. But over time, it has transformed into a week-long party!

If you want to party Puerto Rican style, mark your calendars — The 159th Ponce Carnival will be February 24-February 28th, 2017.
