I understand that Mardi Gras next year will be on February 28th. Can anyone tell me where, apart from Loulé, is a good place to go for the carnival. For instance, will there be a carnival in Faro?All suggestions very welcome.
I don't know about Faro, but there is a really lovely small and free carnival at Quarteira, right on the beach along the front, with about 14 floats. I love it, last year the weather was great and it's so much fun to see all the families out enjoying themselves.
Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, refers to events of the Carnival celebration, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday, which is known as Shrove Tuesday
