Every year on the lead up to Lent. It'll probably start next week.

The burial of the sardine signifies the end of the carival. It's usually accompanied by loads of wailing old ladies wearing black to mourn its departure. Why? I do not know!

I think this is the best web page about Carnaval that I have seen - www.esmadrid.com/carnaval - with a complete timetable and info about the 5 days. The angloinfo link posted didn't work for me.

Thanks for the links. The esmadrid combined with google translate did the job for me.

See you all there for the burial of the sardine!
