Antigua & Caleta de Fuste Carnival 2019
#1
Ayuntamiento de Antigua has announced the dates for Antigua's Carnival.

Translation by Google translate:

Antigua celebrates its Great Carnival in February from 5 to 17 and in Caleta de Fuste from 22 to 24.

The Carnival of Antigua initiates the carnivals of the island and announces itself in a colorful poster throughout the Municipality.

Antigua announces its Carnival in every corner of the municipality with the colorful poster published by the Department of Celebrations of the City Council of Antigua, based on Coco as an allegory chosen by popular vote on social networks.

The councilman of area, Juan Cabrera, confirms in this poster the dates of the Great Carnival of Antigua, which on this occasion, together with that of Caleta de Fuste, covers three weekends, full of surprises and performances that we will announce very soon.

A Carnival program agreed with the Carnival groups of Antigua, and that encourages all and all the neighbors to participate in the wide and varied number of performances, at different times and for all tastes and audiences.

Murgueras, designers, seamstresses, dance groups and countless Carnival and Carnival artists have already begun rehearsals and preparations to exhibit their mastery, creativity and ingenuity at the Carnivals of Antigua 2019.

I didn't know what the theme Coco meant, so I asked some of my students and they say it's based on the 2017 Disney film called Coco.  It's an animation film based on the day of the dead.

I would say, it's really well done animation. Watch it if you can. Here's the trailer :
