Carnival is about community and renewal, and it’s no surprise that so many cities opt to celebrate Carnival in an extravagant way. The floats offer artists a unique outlet to broadcast their artistic flair and their interpretation of current events. They are bold, creative manifestations inspired by regional pride which capture the essence of the season with joy and decadence.  

Just like most traditions that have evolved over the years, Carnival always finds a way to stay relevant and is always ready with a new bag of tricks for those willing to play along. 

Today, there is a Carnival parade somewhere in the world every day during February.
