Captain mentioned in the This week's events:

Quote: Today – a local bank holiday in the Antigua Municipality for Carnival.


I believe, the Carnival in Puerto del Rosario starts officially at the end of this week but some part of it took place over the weekend. It could mean the residents need a day off today, I guess. Huh Big Grin

I guess so! As I was given   conflicting answers by friends both English and Spanish - I decided not to risk going in to Puerto today to do the things I needed to.

The Carnival bank holiday in Puerto del Rosario is on Tuesday 5th March - Martes de Carnavale - and is known as Shrove Tuesday(Pancake Day) in the UK etc.

It's in the main Carnival week in Puerto as the main parade is on the 9th March at 17.30.
